Barcelona, a photo a day

Thankful Dragon

For the invisible man we posted yesterday, it must be quite easy during summer: I suppose he just takes his clothes off, puts on some suncream, and keeps the hat, supposing, of course, that he really is invisible. If he isn’t, no big problem: enough people roam the streets totally naked in the summer in Barcelona. Legally.
Must be much more difficult for this Dragon Man, in his very fancy, and seemingly very hot costume.

And a warm welcome to Regina from Kilauea, Hawaii, our 250th follower!

Il fait 13-14 degres en ce moment, voici le meilleur moyen de rester chaud: se deguiser en dragon. Mais le pauvre va souffrir cet ete! Pour l’homme invisible d’hier, c’est beaucoup plus facile quand il fait tres chaud: il lui suffira d’enlever ses vetements et de garder le chapeau. En supposant bien sur qu’il soit vraiment invisible… S’il ne l’est pas, ce n’est pas tres grave, beaucoup de personnes totalement nues dans les rues de notre bonne ville en ete, tout a fait legalement…

  4. He looks as though he's made of tile. Very colorful. I also hope that if you start showing us naked people you're extremely selective. 😉

  6. The header is lovely – fancy living in one of the flats opposite. The dragon is cool – is he gradé?

  7. Jacob, the guy is dressed like the main attraction in the Parque Guell, the dragon whose photo I posted last tuesday.
    Magdala, I'm glad it makes you feel good! 🙂
    Leif, doesn't happen very often, fortunately, but it is not rare during the summer. Not only men, btw.

  8. A rather colorful costume! What's the point? What does the dragon man do or what is he supposed to do?

    Naked people running about Barcelona. I'm not sure whether that makes me want to visit or not visit! 🙂

  12. Beautiful and I also love your new header photo. I was in Barcelona in 1971 and don't remember such wonderfully vivid color.

  13. I love the iron work to the side! (I think the dragon looks like a she?)

  14. How amiable he looks. I think this is a very friendly dragon.

  15. WOW – Now that's quite a costume! Rather uncomfortable! Do you often see naked people walking around Barcelona?
