The Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, which runs from here in Sant Martí down to the Ciutat de la Justicia. Minolta X300 with MD50mm f1.4 on Ilford Delta 400 in ID-11 1+1.
Newly constructed tower blocks, Sant Martí, Barcelona. Minolta X300 with MD50mm f1.4 on Ilford Delta 400 in ID-11 1+1. Sadly it looks as if the Minolta’s shutter is failing (after 30 years of use…), and many of the images on the roll were unusable.
Masia “Tivis” hiding behind a field of artichokes, seen from Carretera de la Marina, El Prat. This is one of numerous small farms in the El Prat area which seem relatively unchanged by recent time. Leica M7 with 50mm and Ilford Delta 400 in ID-11 1+1.
A set of images from a full-day hike in El Garraf, Catalunya. The Garraf is a calcareous range of hills on the coast just south of Barcelona, and one of the few natural areas that can be reached easily and quickly by train from the city. It is not particularly mountainous, raising from sea level to a little over 600m altitude, but lack of shade and the Mediterranean heat can make the hike harder than you might expect.
Barceloneta. Not photographed with an iPhone 7 ;-)
Sculpture, Barceloneta. Leica M7 with 50mm on Ilford Delta 400.

Not entirely sure why, but there were a pair of neatly parked slippers on the street. C/Tallers, Barcelona. Leica M7, 50mm, Delta 400 in ID-11 1+1.
More amazing Barcelona street art, this taken from by the junction between Carrer de la Selva de Mar and Carrer del Perú in Sant Martí. There are quite a variety of different styles on display, although here I have selected images that have a more organic or painterly feel.
Institut d’ Estudis Catalans (Santa Creu), Barcelona. Leica M7 with 50mm and Ilford Delta 400 in ID-11.
Carrer de la Portarferrissa, Barcelona. Leica M7 with 50mm and Ilford Delta 400.

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…
