I love going through town very early in the morning, the city is so peaceful, no tourist hordes. Here I am, at the famous Kabul backpacker, on Plaza Real, just off the Ramblas. The best time and place for a coffee!
Watch out, here comes my bass solo!
More about the Sant Andreu Jazz Band here. They are very young and very good. You can find them on Youtube as well.
Rainy days in Barcelona, a storm front brought rain and much cooler temperatures. Makes for good photos.
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!
Swing classes on Plaza Real, yesterday morning, with the young members of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band.
Excellent music, real good fun, fantastic weather!
And the press was here as well!
Some more cafe tables, busy ones, on Plaza Real, our very own royal square.
The street lamps on the side were designed by Antonio Gaudi himself.
Some more cafe tables, continuing this month’s theme day. Heavy rain yesterday, but we had some very nice days already, and summer will be here soon. In a few weeks, instead of looking for the sun, we will be avoiding it, and look for a cool place in the shade. Good times are coming!

Well, not really mine, or ours, just a nice place to have a drink. With a bit of HDR.
Every time I go to the Plaza Real in the old town, probably the most beautiful square in Barcelona, I try to take some satisfying photos. Never works. Until now!
Here is a 3D rendition of the same photo.
One of the interesting lamps on Plaza Real, the most beautiful square in the old town (according to me, anyway).
Using the Tenin technique incidentally, merci Eric!
