A short set of landscape images from the Gallecs rural space, just outside of Barcelona. This is a large area which has been preserved as farmland, largely thanks to the efforts of the local population to resist the pressures of urban and industrial development. The freshly ploughed clay soils have an amazingly deep and rich red colour. And lastly, a bonus image of some street art in the underpass connecting the town of Mollet del Vallès to the agricultural lands:
A set of images taken in the Botanic Garden of Madrid, shot in rather damp conditions with a polarising filter to give bold colours.
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.
Ciutat Vella, Barcelona.
La Boqueria, Barcelona. Leica M7 with 50mm summilux, HP5+ rated at ISO 3200, and processed in DD-X 1+4.
More HP5+ shot at ISO 3200 on Las Ramblas, Barcelona.
Carrer dels Comtes, Barcelona.
Carrer de la Pietat, Barcelona.
