Man Reading Newspapers

Reading is an activity that can detach you from reality so much you can even sit in the middle of a noisy street, surrounded by cars and motorcycles without even noticing. I like the pose and serenity of this elderly man, the living proof of human adaptation to an urban environment.

Friends, Vic, Catalonia

Friends, Vic, Catalonia

Two men that seem to be neighborhood friends possibly talking about soccer. A guy is holding the Sport, one of the two main sports newspapers in Catalonia; the other stands up and says something before leaving. A very normal weekend scene in our country where soccer is almost a religion. This picture was taken in Vic, capital of Osona in the Barcelona province.

Land Surveyor With Compass on Barcelona Street

Roaming the streets of Barcelona you can be pleasantly surprised by the most unusual scenes. Street photography sometimes is just about that, roaming and hoping for an unusual shot. You can take a series of pictures totally at random or you can found your subject and frame it with relative time. On this particular occasion, I did have time to compose and I was lucky enough to find something I like a lot, people working, doing their job. Here is a land surveyor, scrutinizing the distance and measuring with her compass. It is that kind of job you always wondered how the heck it works and what it is good for. If you are one of those that ever wondered that, maybe you can find out here: What is surveying or land surveying?

Preparing Cod Fish, Barcelona

Preparing Cod Fish, Barcelona

Man preparing cod fish at El Ninot market in Barcelona. With this modest sample of street photography I want to inaugurate this blog where I pretend to concentrate on everyday scenes I shoot in the city. Should you prefer a more eclectic work please browse my complete portfolio at the main site: Barcelona Photoblog. I intend to dedicate the same amount of time to Barcelona Street Photography as I devote to my other blog and I am sure Barcelona has got a lot to give in that sense. I have noticed that although there are plenty of similar websites dedicated to portray our reality there are not so many that clearly state they are about street photography. This is something I love and like to share with you. I hope thanks to this new adventure I find friends with similar interests to give some feedback.
