Barcelona, a photo a day


I admire these artists on the Rambla, not just for their skill, but also, and maybe mostly, for their patience. Sitting there for hours, waiting for clients, in the cold, in the heat, in the often very crowded Rambla. A job for saints…
And hasn’t she got a big nose… Oops, sorry: it’s a caricature!

  1. Great composition especially of second shot – the colors in the artist's jacket stand out and we get to see his artwork.

  5. Contrairement à Louis l'Américain, moi j'ai pensé à Central Park, là où j'ai vu ces peintres pour la dernière fois. Je me demande quand même si la jeune fille du haut a aimé le nez que lui a dessiné l'artiste !

  6. Those pencil or charcoal portraits are after my heart. I love doing them when I did. My daughter is good at it too. This guy is really good.

  8. I was thinking the same as “Louis”.
    These are people with talents, and I have seen them in London and Paris.
    Nice and interesting. Thanks for sharing!:-)

  9. This reminds «Louis» of the artists in the Place du Tertre square on Montmartre in Paris.

    «Louis» likes the new header! As he's commented before, you really pick some amazing photos for your headers!

    «Louis» always appreciates your visits to San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.
