Tourist Snap

Tourist Snap - Barcelona

 

Barcelona is one of the most photographed cities in the world, where anyone can take a picture and even the bars are even going so far as to put logos and banners to suggest taking a picture from a certain vantage point. Because people can not make that judgement for themselves?

Walking back this evening through the Parc de la Ciutadella, every time that I raised the camera and took a photograph it seemed there was a tourist with a cellphone or Rebel DSLR watching who decided that whatever I was pointing at must be interesting and worth shooting as well. Because people can not make that judgement for themselves???

With the heat and crowds, I think that it has for now become impossible to take meaningful pictures in the touristic panopticon that the center of this city has become.

  1. I agree with you. I recently got down low to take a photo from an interesting perspective, a person walking the other way got into exactly the same position and took the same photo. Annoying.
