A last one…

Back from too short holidays in the french countryside, sigh.
So, what about a last (kind of) bicycle, for the fun of it, before passing onto something else?

A reflection…

Barcelona Museum or Weird Things

This is bicycle, believe it or not. An expensive one, about 4000 USD, 3500 euros.

Ready for tomorrow?


Sorry about this…

Imagen%25201271

Sorry about the bad quality of this photo, it was taken on the fly with a very basic mobile phone a few years ago, on the Plaza d’ Espana.
But then, the bad quality might be a good thing, at least for some …
This photo is not possible anymore. Until 2 years ago, public nudity was legal in Barcelona.

Another bike, getting ready for the CDP theme day!


The bike-house

SONY DSC

Saw him all the time, for several years, a seemingly homeless guy with his house on his bike.Good luck to you, dude.


The bike tours

SONY DSC

Quite a lot of tours of any kind in Barcelona, even bike tours. No need to BYO!

More bikes in their natural environment soon to come, getting ready for the great worldwide City Daily Photos one and unique Theme Day, on August 1st! Don’t you miss it!!!!!

CDP theme day: upside down

Upside down… When I read about this coming theme, a few weeks ago, I drew a blank. But fortunately, we had in BCN the festa al cel, the festival in the sky.

Eye revolution

Let’s go to me olde home for the day, London. Fancy a few revolutions on the London eye?

More sky photos on the excellent Skywatch Friday meme!


Viva la revolución!

DSC00432

May 1st. This month’s theme day is revolution, la revolución! This is what happened in Barcelona, Madrid, London, and so on, a while back, youth fed up with politicians and bankers, of course all of them corrupt. A political party came out of it, Podemos, we can, the second strongest party in Spain. Many good things to say about them, many bad things as well (their ideal seems to be Chavez, in Venezuela………)

Staying on the subject…

Perfect for circumnavigation… Some kind of revolution: the movement of an object in a circular or elliptical course around another or about an axis or centre, according to the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary.

The clue is in the link…


And one more…

Another camera-shy selfie…


Jamón, Jamón

April… Let’s start the month with the City Daily Photo theme day, won’t we! Theme: my camera-shy self portrait. Well, here I am on Calle Pelaio, hiding behind the hams reflected in what used to be the Happybooks shop. It is now a so-called a Jamóneria, a ham shop. I am always very sad to see a bookshop closing, btw.

You know what to do… Click here to see what my friends from CDP did with this theme.

Monthly theme day: what would… Oh look, there is Superman on the roof!

What would you miss most, should you have to leave the city where you are blogging from? Not an easy one, so many things come to mind. Would it be the beaches, would it be the culture scene, coffee, the 100-odd museums in town? No, no a single thing, but rather all of them combined in what I would call the spirit of Barcelona, the sheer cheerful craziness of the place. As I’m not living there anymore, I perfectly know what I miss.

And the winner is…

DSC01614_tonemapped

It was a year with many ups, but also with a few downs, mainly healthwise. Specially one, who left me… different.
Therefore this photo. She definitely is different! And there is such a great joy and life in her. She is my favorite.
