When You’re Having a Good Time

The grills are light. Smoke fills the air and the smell of the grill opens up apetites all over the place. It’s Museum Night in Barcelona and the Food Fairs await night wonderers who want to fill their bellies after filling their minds. There’s something for everyone. Ribs, sandwiches, tacos, empanadas and even arepas. Oh, and beer of course. So many types of beer!

This is one of the things I love the most about Barcelona. There is always something to do. And I have to say, outdoors food fairs are close to number one in my list. Specially if during spring time and near the beach.

We had so much to eat! And everything was delicious. Or maybe everything just tasted better because of the ambience, music and overall good energy. And to top it all, it was a perfect afternoon to take photos. I haven’t been taking as many photos as I would like lately… But even so, these ones turned out great! Well, at least I like them a lot. I think they really put accross the energy and the peace from that afternoon.

I loved it. I had a great time and I needed it. The weekend went by SO fast. But well, you know what they say: time goes fast when you are having a good time.

Have a great week, everyone!

The Fair

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.

Barcelona Fair

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.

Candies Fair

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.
