This is one of the most beautiful places we visit in barcelona, and to say the less, it has its own magic touch. This time our group experiences the fabulous fall of hundreds of yellow petal while a violinist performed in the middle of the square. The tall threes, the light and the ambiance that you can breathe here, is amazingly peaceful for a square located downtown Barcelona. It is amazing a brutal murder was film here for the movie, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, based on the novel by Patrick Suskind.

¿Sabes lo que es un Time Lapse?

Esta maravillosa secuencia de fotos tomada en la Montaña del Teide en islas Canarias, se puede lograra haciendo un uso programado de la función de ráfaga en los modos semi automáticos AV o TV.

La sensación es similar al video, sin embargo el intervalo de disparo es programado en algunas cámara de manera automática y en otras se debe hacer de manera manual. una increíble experiencia!

Is your City Photogenic????

Some cities have more sexappeal than others, I have travel some cities in Europe and America and can say that for e there are Industrial, Historical, Business, Suburbian and also Sexy Cities.

The sexiest Photogenic Cities for me would be New York, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Seattle, Havana and Helsinki. Industrial Cities would be Detroit, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Toulouse. Business cities would be London,  New York again, Seattle, Caracas, Bogota, Stockholm , Copenhagen. Suburban cities : Miami, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Historical: Berlin, Paris, Brussels.

Picturing urban Portraits

skaters, portraits, secrets, tourists, and all the diversity of the Raval on a Saturday morning. The purpose was to be able to get in touch with people and get them to pose for urban portraits. Many times it is hard for us asking people to pose for us , because we imagine they will get mad or be nasty, but that is not always true. Urban Portrait is one of the mos fascinating experiences during urban explorations. Faces and people tell us a lot a bout cities and the local life in every place.

This group enjoyed breaking the fear to get in touch with people and understood ways and techniques to approach and deal with spontaneous portraits.

Enjoying Modernism with Christine, Christopher and their son

Christine is a friend of a friend that lives in Seattle and this year decided to visit Barcelona while traveling with their son in the south of France.

We got in contact because an american friend living in Barcelona thought it would be nice for them to take pictures and learn a little about Modernist erchitecture during their visit. A complete visit to all relevant modernist buildings in Barcelona would take about one whole week, this including private homes, shops, public buildings and parks. Only Gaudi ´s work would take at least 3 days and our goal was to make it enjoyable in 4 hours.

For photographers and photo amateurs a tour requires a little more time for framing, thinking and shooting, so no place for rushing or running here. Too many wonders in too little time, so we decided to take the left part of the Eixemple district as our territory and explore the most notorious architechts of modernism in this area. So from our previous Modernist circuits we took this part and developed a personal map and a booklet with information on each building, architect and location for each one of them. Our meeting point was at their apartment right in front of Fundación Godia, our first landmark to be visitised.

During the walk we disocovered that Christopher, after working for Microsoft for many years is now a very active photographer with his own website and photography exhibitions in the USA, Christine enjoyed the stories about the Catalan families and their desire for notoriety, in a city that became metropoli keeping a deep smalltown soul. The Harris-Crandall family had a great afternoon to be together, learn, take pictures, shop for local food and discover a little bit of this wonderful city.
