Barcelona + Leica Camera

Posted on 09 February 2011

There is no denying that Barcelona is a beautiful city that takes pride in its rich history crossed with the embrace of modernity.  If you can overlook the fact that the crime rate for petty theft and muggings runs rampant along with the seemingly slightly cranky nature of its inhabitants, then you will love this city. There is such a wide array of textures and colors, this city is a designer or artist’s dream.  The city is also filled with some of the best nightlife and people eye candy that Europe has to offer.  Some would say that the best looking people (male and female) can be found in this city. I can’t even recall how many times I’ve heard a guy say “Spanish girls are the most beautiful of Europe” or “Spanish girls are fun”.  I concur that the same goes for Spanish and Catalan men. The sidewalks consist of lovely flower design engravings -beats a plain old grey sidewalk any day! You’ll find Gaudi’s work all over the city and this is a huge draw for tourists. The beach is a beautiful place to spend your day -sip on some Sangria and contemplate some deep thoughts about the history and importance of the mediterranean sea. The following images were taken in Barcelona using a LEICA D-LUX 4 over a one day period in February 2010.  The Leica D-LUX 4 is inexpensive yet it takes such high quality photos with so many offerings for creative possibilities.  It’s also very portable, easy to carry anywhere.
