Street scene, Plaça de Joan Amades, Barcelona. Leica M7 with 50mm and Ilford Delta 400 in ID-11.
Port Vell at night, Barcelona. Modern technology is quite astonishing. This was a 0.6s exposure taken hand-held with the E-M1 mark II and 12mm f2 at ISO 400. All you need to do now is simply frame, lock focus, and let the result of decades of high technology research and development by some very smart people do the rest…
A gallery of images of the illegal street market at the Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, Barcelona. The market sells a mix of collected rubbish and most likely stolen items, and at its peak can have as many as 30 to 50 traders present. It forms part of a criminal system that spans from minor crimes such as petty theft through to more serious concerns such as drug dealing, prostitution and criminal theft, damage and usurpación that has badly affected local residents such as ourselves. The traders here represent very much the bottom of this […]
That things are not what they seem should be an automatic reaction to anything that is reported today on the internet. Leica M7 with 50mm on Delta 100 and processed in ID-11 at dilution 1+1. It is immediately obvious how much smoother the image is compared to the previous (push processed) example, and while I like the result I suspect that it would be fairly easy to replicate this with a digital camera.
Plaça dels Angels, Barcelona. Shot with the M7 and 21mm SEM with a deep orange filter on Ilford Delta 100.
Some shots from the streets of Lahore, inside of the walled city. Finally, somewhere that makes Barcelona look quiet ;-) I really like the disorganised organisation of a South Asian bazaar. Everything happens at the same time at the same place and in some cases seemingly and unseemingly crushing and confronting. Human behaviour at its most raw, unfiltered and unconstrained (or at least so it seems). All this action is accompanied by a strong stimulation of all senses (beyond the visual), noise can be deafening and smells overpowering. However, the […]
El Raval, Barcelona.
Plaça de las Caramelles, Barcelona.
Carrer de la Portaferrissa, Barcelona. Shot on HP5+ rated at ISO 3200 and processed in DD-X 1+4.
Porter, La Boqueria, Barcelona. Possibly the only photograph that I have shot there that was not explicitly about the tourists…
La Boqueria, Barcelona. I do not usually like to post photographs from behind people, but in this case I quite liked the correspondence between the different shapes in the image.
La Boqueria, Barcelona. This is quite a good place to practise technique with (on) the tourists, who are usually quite flatted to be photographed.
La Boqueria, Barcelona.
The first of three images where people realised they were being shot (photographically). The M7 is a good street camera, but dressing up in a day-glow yellow t-shirt probably undoes any subtlety that the camera has.
Four very loosely connected images on the theme of light and shadow in Barcelona. This is one of the best times of the year for early morning light, as you can catch the streets before the tourists escape from their hotels.
