Barcelona, a photo a day

Window shopping

Right. This is one of a kind. I explain: if there is something I very rarely do, it is taking pictures of shop windows. Maybe I’m wrong, maybe I should do it more. Who knows.

Anyway, this is one I really liked. All kind of weird creatures roaming a shop window in the old town, near the Cathedral. Looks almost like some kind of strange rockabilly/funk/punk/glitterati music band. One of them might actually be Gary Glitter… Or is it Saint Saens’s Carnival of the animals? Questions, questions, so many questions…
Good night, or good day all.

Message to VP: yes, Grimaldi Lines go from here to Livorno, Sardegna and Civitavecchia.

And also: I’m having a few very busy and very exhausting days, and I can’t roam your blogs as much as I would love to. Should be back to normal in a short while.

  3. I love this shot, the colors are really great. The pig looks like a big boss, with the cigarette in the corner of the mouth.

  8. Great, whimsical shot!!:) And I agree – shop windows offer a lot of charm when least expected! Is that pig kicking the cat in the head? I'd be ticked, too, if I had to be so crowded in like that!!

  9. Kind of like Alice in Wonderland meets The Muppets. Colorful stuff here. I like it.
    P.S. Hang in there Rob. Hopefully things will calm down soon.
