Our street is the theme for this month on the CDP portal, and this is the photo we chose, a photo about the street around the corner from ours.

The beach chairs have been put away. The winter clothes came out of the wardrobes. Christmas lights are on in the streets and square. The city looks festive. It is the end of yet another year.
Some more lights in the night… There had to be a Christmas tree on Plaza Catalunya!
This seems to be the common decoration for the Corte Ingles superstores in Spain. Well, at least here and in Sevilla (thanks, Ashleigh!). How is it in Lisboa, JM?
This is the last of this series of Christmas lights night shots. Tomorrow, we’ll be getting… seedy…
Blue is definitely the dominant color on Plaza Catalunya at night!
Many tourists (and photographers) in town, all of them admiring the Christmas decorations on Plaza Catalunya
Crisis or not crisis, the Christmas lights are on, and the city center looks totally gorgeous! More night shot full of light to come.
One strange thing about this photo though, for us anyway… Outside temperature 19 degrees, high sixties. Not too christmassy! No need for a sweater yet.
As you all notices, I like experimenting (well ok: playing around) with my photos. The result is never really what I expected, sometimes good, sometimes better, sometimes not good, sometimes really bad. But then, sometimes, photography can be like painting… with a little sun glare on my lense.
This year again, our city hall was transformed into a feast of light, colors and music. A very good computer operated animation on the whole facade of the building.
My apologies to all the people whose heads I cut of while cropping these photos. Hope it didn’t hurt too much.
More photos here.
Some more Christmas lights, on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes…
…on Ronda Sant Marti…
During the Merce Festival, several times during the evening, the facade of the Barcelona City Hall changes quite drastically… Enjoy!
The guest city this year being Dakar, the capital of Senegal, some of the photos have a very african inspiration.
