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.

Yep, some of those arts in the images are distorted…
nice photos yo got there
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.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I wonder what he was like to have dinner with. But I love his 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!
Dali is a fantastic artist in his own way! I hope your trip is going well.
I wish my mind was that “distorted” (read “creative”)! 🙂 Great pics!
It would be an interesting experience to see things his way.
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.
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!
Very true Gilly!
Great photos. I saw something about this museum on a travel show.
I’ll have to see if I can find a show on it. I would like to learn more about it.
great choices…he certainly fits with this week
Yes he does! Thanks!
Great interpretation of this week’s theme! Dali’s work fits the bill.
He was an unusual and gifted artist.
Amazing…. All of them fascinated me dear TBM, Thank you, with my love, nia
This is amazing. What cool works of art. I would love to see this for real.
I hope you can see them in person. They are incredible!
Great ones for the challenge!
D is for dali is for distortion – how appropriate! enjoyed looking at your photos 🙂
I love it! Thanks!
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.
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 😉
Dali was an excellent choice for distorted!!
Thanks! I love his distorted take on the world.
