Barcelona Street

Colour and Monochrome Barcelona

I feel most in my element when walking around the city with the sun on my back and fresh batteries in the camera. Much more so than I do at any tourist attraction with an admission fee or line up. I love catching life as it is and I try to go unnoticed. For people photography, if someone spots me I will look for that split second moment where they give consent to take the photo. If they show any sign of being upset, I will not take the photo or if I do, it will never see the light of day. Luckily this rarely happens. Street photography becomes easier in a big city where there are many other distractions. People are either used to photographers or they are pre-occupied going about their daily business.

Below are two sets of ten colour and monochrome images captured over the course of five days in Barcelona.
