Barcelona, a photo a day


At work, I’m dealing mainly, but not only, with companies in the UK. Therefore, as it is a Bank Holiday there today, instead of going to work, I went to the zoo with my wife. Nice, innit?

We saw many wonderous and amazing beasts today. 2 white peacocks, a hippo the size of a large pig, big sleeping cats, an empty wolf enclosure (which is rather worrying. Where are they, roaming the streets of our fair city?), a gigantic gorilla, this one not made of chocolate, dancing and flying dolphins. And so on and so forth. Despite of our deepest longings, we decided, my wife and myself, not to set all the animals free. This time.

I obviously took too many photos, as usual.

But I’d like to show you this one, just some simple flowers on a wall.
And OK, I confess: as the day was grey and dull, the light being a bit too white, I played a bit around with the picture. To put a bit of color into a grey day, and into my blog.

  4. Rob, we can easily forgive minor “tweaking” of a scene this nice. Glad you had a chance to spend the day with your wife. Now, put a nice thick steak in your pocket and go looking for that wolf.

  6. Oi Rob! Ficou realmente linda essa foto. As cores, a disposição das mesmas ficou de tal forma, como se alguém as tivesse arrumado. Isso sem contar com o ângulo, pelo qual, foi utilizada a objetiva.

  12. What a beautiful way to spend the day. Thank you for sharing it with us. And thank you for punching the color up a bit in the photograph. It would have been a great shot, either way, but I'm grateful for the enhancement.

  13. I'll always forgive a bit more color given with grace… About freeing the animals you reminded me a famous scene of Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys, a movie I adore.
