Five more black and white images, taken in and around the touristic centre of Barcelona. These were all shot with the Ricoh GR II and converted from RAW to black and white in Capture One.
Five images characterised by framing, taken at the Monestir de Pedralbes on the outskirts of Barcelona.
The monastery is now run as a museum, and makes an excellent alternative place to visit if you are overloaded from Gaudi and the industrial-grade tourism of the centre of the city. Aside from the history of the monastery, there are often music recitals and an excellent collection of religious art (click an image to view full-size):
A selection of images from this years Pride march in Barcelona. The route this year was longer than in the past, running from Plaça España down the Parallel and then on to Moll de la Fusta in Port Vell where the concert stages and stalls were setup. The weather was cripplingly hot – but fortunately there were numerous people spraying water over themselves and everyone else in the crowd.
Five images, loosely around the theme of movement in Barcelona, and differing opportunities.
The tiles with the aircraft form part of the installation “El món neix en cada besada” (The world is born in every kiss) by the excellent conceptual photographer Joan Fontcuberta. The installation is a fotomosaic showing a kiss, made from local residents’ photographs. Here is another shot, showing a small section of the images more clearly:
The full mosaic only really makes sense in colour – I will post an image of it when I catch up with the colour film processing here.
Having just processed and scanned a new batch of four colour films, I am struggling again with how to get the best possible detail out of the scans. To understand how well the scanning was working, I use a reference macro image of the negative to check the sharpening applied in Capture One.
