Joaquín Costa, Barcelona.
Skateboarder, Barcelona. Long exposure with fill-flash – a bit experimental, but with some practise it should be possible to get some interesting results. Shot with the Ricoh GR using built-in flash.

Five images of people sitting, Barcelona. Some of these people are actively working, begging or just resting. It is not always obvious which.

Three snapshots of tourists, taken around Plaça Universidad and Plaça Catalunya this afternoon. The tourist trade is the economic life-blood of Barcelona, with people coming from all backgrounds and from all over the world.
A rather melancholy set. The images were taken on a very windy and cold Barcelona Photography meet up in early February at Tibidabo. The images are in shown in reverse order here – start at the bottom. All except the wedding image were taken with a 50mm lens. I think that if I could have only one lens it would be a 50mm.
