Barcelona 2017 – tourists and locals

 

actually i saw in Barcelona much more tourists than locals, even i tried to avoid massive tourists places, but i had time to visit Sagrada Familia, park Guell, Montjuic Castle, Catedral de Barcelona, Basílica de Santa Maria del Mar and some more – some of these places you will recognize in the images below. in addition to my regular DSLR camera, two days i walked with the only Ricoh GR1s film camera and exposed two rolls of Velvia but still waiting for the results from the local Lab. i hope to take them tomorrow and even more hope to see some appropriate results – both rolls were expired more then 10 years ago, plus – they SURVIVED a X-Ray machine in very “friendly” Barcelona airport.

some cool or interesting facts – i took this first image of these girls shooting selfie with the Catedral de Barcelona at their background and immediately they asked me to take a few images of them with their smartphone, we started to talk and in the end of our conversation understood that we are from the same country :-)

at the second image – my mom is in the front line before chinese tourists :-)

these Barcelona acrobats asked me to take their group portrait and to post it to their Facebook “Barcelona Acrobats” group (or page??) – I did not find either one or the other :( , but was nice to collaborate with them.

and the last one – i found this beautiful highlighted door of one of the entrance to Sagrada Familia and took a few close ups of these outstanding typography, very close in a shade i notised two girls taking portraits of each other – i recommended to one of them this place and asked to pose for my camera too :-)

 
enjoy :

      1. This will pass! We all have these days and I found out something important about it: We don’t have a creativity block, we are just in a period of transition. Creativity sometimes need a short time of “recreation”…
        Creativity is a gift that stays with you and I look forward to see lots more of your great art!
        Have a wonderful day my friend,

        1. thank you again Jurgen. i almost bought a new gear ( some lens ) but understood that this is the trap and nothing external can help – only to wait and to continue shooting 😉
          and you said very beautiful words !

  1. Barcelona is being projected as a vibrant city, young in full of life. Taking pics of the locals and their activity gives one a fair but true idea of their life.

    1. i enjoyed every single minute of this trip and it was about to walk and to see and less to take pictures. two days i walked with the only film camera loaded with color slide film not usual for me condition. i will get the results next week and hope to.post more 😉 thank you very much !
