Dragons in Barcelona, Parasol Mfg, Las Ramblas

The dragon was finally captured!  For years I have waited to get this beastie in the afternoon light only to be too busy elsewhere at the right time. This year however, my luck changed and I finally got it (him? her?) in the last of the apricot light before the buildings nearby put shadows all over the scene. Dragons are a big deal in Barcelona, they appear in motifs in the Bari Gotic through the Modernista era. The American Football team was even called The Dragons!
