It is a dull grey morning in Granollers and after a mild winter and a few sunny months it is a shock to return to winter.
There is a north wind from the mountains and the tables outside cafes are deserted except for determined smokers.
I always look up now. Many of the buildings are boring at street level but one floor up there is a feast of detail.
The building at the beginning of the pedestrian street is called Casa Miquel Blanxart i Estapé and is one example of early 20th C modernism in Granollers.
Today looking up I saw clearly the silhouettes of three women on the front walls. Their arms are outstretched and it looks like they have birds sitting on their hands.
Are they always visible or was it a trick of the light on this damp dull day? It looks like there were originally sculptures there or were they designs painted directly on the walls? I don’t know but it was interesting to see how they had left their imprint.
