Barca by night March 31, 2014March 31, 2014Andrew 23 Comments Two monochrome images to finish off in Barca. Tomorrow we start the long trip home with a very tight change in London. Fingers crossed. So I offer you ‘Underneath the Lamplight’ and The Walkers. But not necessarily in that order. Share this:FacebookEmailPinterestTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related

Love the whole composition with the nuns and the window and the wall and the light.
The top picture is a classic, Andrew, and both pictures are, again, excellent writing prompts.
Great B&W. Both photos are excellent. Lighting of the first one is fantastic. A story of any choosing for the woman with the luggage on wheels.
I see she’s reading her map. Hope she made it to her hotel !
The two women and totally evocative of so much of Spain and the Moorish influence – much more so than in any other country with large Muslim populations …
We discovered an interesting area close to our hotel today, M.R. Ethnically very different. We also discovered the red light district fully functioning in broad daylight but that’s a story (and image) for another day. I can only say that Map Lady hasn’t shown up in our hotel yet.
We found it, too !!!! – we walked through without even realizing! 😀
I did wonder if that was something called ‘paper’ in the girl’s hand? I believe they used to use that before we had tablets and phones. Looks pretty fragile to me. 😉
I remember paper. Useful for many things. You can’t wrap fish & chips in an iPad 😊
Fiiissshhh and Chiiiipppsss!
I wonder what came first paper or fish and chips …..
Excellent scenes Andrew, which look terrific in B&W.
a story in the second shot, Andrew, very evocative, the first? Pffft, they’re only walking. Heh!! xPenx
Great B & W shots, so rare these days. B & W pictures, with their wonderful play of light and shadows do evoke a palette of possibilities, do they not? What could we do to create similar effects in colour photography?
Thank you Shakti. B&W is still popular but colour has lots of possibilities too it’s good to have a choice.
‘Underneath the Lamplight’ is good, but I am with the crowd applauding ‘The Walkers’….I assume it is named because that is what they are doing and not the family name. 🙂 Whichever, it is very well done and an ‘All downhill from here’ classic.
If they were chaps they might have been the walker brothers!
I echo Gerard, the top shot is the top shot. Lovely. Hope you’ve both had a great time and that the weather was good. It was 6c here on Saturday, free-ee-zing but today is glorious and I spotted more Hoopees in the olive groves.
Ah Hoopoes. Classy birds. We’ve had a lot of fun Lottie. We visited Park Guell yesterday. Lots of birdlife there too 😊.
So near and yet so far. We were within the same country for a few days together. Not that I knew it without internet 😀 Why Barca? Andalucía has much nicer cities.
I had never been to Barca before. Andalucia is beautiful but there will be other opportunities I hope.
Barca is OK, I do like Gaudi and the wonderful surreality of it all, a bit like Dali at Figueres (except wandering around the museum there I had an OD of him). We didn’t stay long because A found the city too noisy and too busy so off we went to Tarragona or somewhere much nicer. But my warm southern Andalucían cities are the best. They were the first places I ever visited in Spain, and they still haven’t lost their attraction. The trouble with Spain is that there is too much to see.
The top shot is the top shot. Wonderful and evocative. Those black figures below the black window. Greatest shot.!
Thanks Gerard. You are very kind.
