Barcelona, a photo a day

Theme day: Time

You might remember the summer of 1982 (if you’re old enough, that is). This little guy came to visit us by accident. All he wanted to do was to phone home. He did indeed fly home at the end of the summer.

28 years later… TIME flies. But…What happened to him???

Well, and this is breaking news: we are very happy to report that he chose the beautiful city of Barcelona for his long awaited comeback!

His planet’s money not being worth peanuts here, he was lucky enough to get this job, selling TIMEpieces in the Raval, in Carrer Tallers. Bienvenido a Barcelona, tio!

PS: original picture reworked, as it was very dark, and as I somehow had to get rid of the reflections on the window.

This is for the monthly theme day, this month’s theme being TIME.
