Barcelona, a photo a day

Weekend reflection bubble


Came across these guys who are blowing giant soap bubbles, and I said to myself: what a wonderful thing! Let’s post it!
What is reflected in the bubbles themselves are the 19th- early 20th century buildings on Calle Laietana, one of the old town’s main thoroughfares. And what is behind the bubbles are what remains of the very old roman walls from the original Barcino. Almost 2000 years of architecture in the photos.

This, of course, is for James’s Weekend Reflections. Click here, and have fun!

  10. Irina, this was shot with a 200mm lens, I was standing about 20 meters away, this is why I'm not reflected in the bubble.

  12. EXCELLENT !

    I'm very fond of rainbow, and your work on this shot really pleases me…

    Natural colors were fine by me, but the enhanced second shot is amazing…

    Your my favourite in this week contest, with Jill, who were also able to catch a very unsual type of rainbow… (http://nutcase007.blogspot.com/2011/02/different-kind-of-vortex.html)
