What is your bedside reading right now? I am in some good old sci fi, Ark, by Stephen Baxter.

More b&w here.


Off to work I go…

A common sight on the ramblas, Mr Goldie Boy. Not that street entertainers left, only 15 in the morning, 15 in the afternoon, according to municipal laws and rules.


Ouch!

Some funny publicity in a clothes shop on Passeig de Gracia. To see more b&w, click here, and here for more reflections.


A right royal place

One of the side entrances to the Plaza Real, the royal square, one of the jewels of Barcelona, just off the Ramblas. There is a youth hostel on the square, the Kabul youth hostel, where I used to stay many years ago, when I was just another tourist in town. Happy days!


Now that’s how to make an entrance! Aka post 1648

This is the extraordinary entrance to the Cosmocaixa science museum. You actually have to spiral down, around a 30m/90 ft tall brazilian rain forest tree.
Elevators to go out…

And by the way, I almost forgot about it, but this blog celebrated it’s 5th blogaversy on may 10th. Hooray!!!!


B and W weekend

Black and white Skywatch Friday

The Plaza Real in Barcelona is an absolutely beautiful square, in any weather or time of day/night. Here it is in monochrome, for Skywatch Friday and Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

The street lamps on the side were designed by Antonio Gaudi himself.


Weekend Reflections

More from Horta, the park with the amazing maze.

Weekend in black and white: gone fishing

It is the weekend, and I might do just this… Ah, who am I kidding, I wont have the time to do it!


One I made before…

…in January, at the Catalan Circus Raluy. I only turned the photo into black and white, no other treatment or mistreatment.


Montserrat BW

A good view of the extraordinary settings of the Montserrat Abbey, for Skywatch Friday and the Weekend in Black and White.


Feel it!

Wordless Wednesday


The golden ant

La Formiga d’ or, or golden ant, is one of the nicer bookshops in town. We just love the place, being giant bookworms. There are 2 of them in town, one in the cathedral’s cloister, and one nearby. Both have a very medieval feel. What’s your favorite bookshop like?

The weekend in black and white.


Balloons?

A rest for the eyes, after so many colors in the Palau.
This is what I saw just outside the Palau. Don’t know what was the occasion, but a belated happy something to you!

Seagulls. Plenty of them around. Definitely part of our world!

Our World Tuesday.

I have very little time at the moment, can’t browse your blogs as much as I would like to. Will be back soon-ish.


I love my dog!

As Cat Stevens would say. And we love our cat!
