Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

When I saw that this week’s photo challenge was Distorted the first thing that popped into my head was my visit to the The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain.  I couldn’t decide on one photo so here are a few I took while there.  Also, if you are ever near the area I highly recommend this museum.  It is an amazing place to see.   Dalí designed this museum so not only do you get to enjoy his art, you become a part of the art. Enjoy Salvador Dalí’s wonderful, distorted mind.

    WOW! What wonderful choices. I wouldn’t be able to decide either. Yes, I would say the art comes from a distorted mine. Funny how we find beauty in distorted art.

    I love Salvatore Dali, he is one of my favourite artists! 🙂 Crazy, but genius! I went to his exhibition in London some time ago and spent hours walking around and inspecting his work 🙂

      If you get a chance go to this museum. You’ll love it. I only knew some of this artwork, but I was enthralled by this museum. It is about an hour’s drive from Barcelona.

    Excellent examples 🙂

    I love Dali and I took the slow train from Marseille all they way there back in the 90s when I was living in France. I can hardly remember it!

  7. I wish my mind was that “distorted” (read “creative”)! 🙂 Great pics!

    I liked this museum a lot, it’s a bit disturbing in some ways. I remember a car in the court yard that looked like an accident or something. I liked the Mae West room best.
    Great photos.

    • TBM says:

      The courtyard was pretty cool, in an odd and disturbing way. I’m not a huge museum person, but I loved this one. It is quite an experience.

    What a unique mind he had!

  10. Northern Narratives says:

    Great photos. I saw something about this museum on a travel show.

  11. Jo Bryant says:

  12. Jackie Cangro says:

    Great interpretation of this week’s theme! Dali’s work fits the bill.

  14. This is amazing. What cool works of art. I would love to see this for real.

  15. Fergiemoto says:

    Great ones for the challenge!

  16. LivE says:

    D is for dali is for distortion – how appropriate! enjoyed looking at your photos 🙂

  17. I have this thing about dadaism (my family and very close friends call me dada), surreal artwork, the distorted, disfigured, strange and fantastical – I have a feeling I’d drown in this museum and just stay there forever.

    • TBM says:

      I didn’t know a lot about Dali before going to the museum. We studied some of his artwork in art history class, but just briefly. This museum blew me away. If you go, pack some food for a few days 😉
