Barcelona, a photo a day

theme of the month: statues

1st of may. Happy day to all workers out there, specially to those actually working today. I just wish it didn’t fall on a saturday.
Anyway, theme day today: Statues. Which is a bit bad for me, as I showed you my favorite statues in Barcelona, the giant lobster, Botero’s ‘Gat’ and ‘el cul’ several times already. So…. Barcelona is famous for it’s living statues on the Rambla. Here is one, announcing spring a few weeks ago.

  1. I know that I’m late. It was a busy weekend. But let me say that I like your shot and your realization of the theme very much. What a “living” statue. Really well photographed.

  3. Rob: Tech note: «Louis» is getting this message “Safari is no longer responding because of a script on the webpage “Barcelona Daily Photo” ( Do you want to stop running the script, or let it continue?” It popped up twice in a row.

    Also, Blogger is acting weird – nothing you can do anything about. «Louis» has tried leaving comments twice, not counting this one and is getting an error message from Blogger, so he has no idea if you got the comments or not.

  5. What a happy sight you do provide, on a day when I had to work from 11.00 until 18.00 o'clock, conducting lesson after lesson, but the students did work as well, so it was only half as difficult.
    Please have a great Sunday, hope you are felling better.
