Last week, seizing the benefits of our new city, my husband and I decided to go for saturday afternoon stroll. We walked through the streets of Barcelona and the coast, about eight kilometers in total, and it was spectacular.
As expected, I took my camera with me expecting to find something special, and we did. After walking for some time, we found a mechanical fairground near the beach.
I have never been to a fair like this, and I loved it. The lights, the sounds, the smell of food, everything was extremely colorful and bright, like something brought out of a movie and it was quite unreal.
I took lots of pictures. For me this was a completely new sight and everything was worth to be photographed.
The photos have very little processing. All I did was give them all the same treatment as to the intensity of the colors, to enhance the consistency between them, beyond the subject.
Additionally, you may notice that people are not present in most of the images and, if there are, they are not the focus of the picture. This was completely intentional.
Since I saw the fair I intended that the photographs had some of a dark mood. Such places have always inspired me a sense of creepiness. Hence the decision in the treatment of colors and the absense of people in the images.
I had fun doing these pictures. And there is something else I can add to the list of new things I have done this year.
