Painted trucks from the Circ Històric de Raluy, which is currently open at the harbour in Port Vell, Barcelona. In real life they are quite colourful, and the wagons and trucks surround the big-top defensively as if from a scene in a surreal 1950’s western. Leica M7 with 50mm f1.4 and Ilford Delta 100 processed in DD-X.
This year’s presepe in Plaça de Sant Jaume is a modern work of art that is difficult to capture on film, comprising a fantastic array of kinetic artworks housed in giant inflated snow-globes. A nicely post-modern and largely secular interpretation of a traditional Christmas event. Leica M7 with 50mm and Ilford Delta 100 processed in DD-X.

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.
La playa, Barceloneta.
