La Festa de la Mercè


 La Festa de la Mercè is an annual festival hosted by the city of Barcelona.

There are various activities throughout the city over a four day period and my guess is that the Merce is the close of summer.

Today, we find ourselves on carrer Ferran and up ahead is la Plaça de Sant Jaume where tall human like figures will parade around the square and,

A sea of people strolling to the plaça will enjoy.

Do My Eyes Deceive Me?

Do My Eyes Deceive Me?

This day showed almost no promise of seeing unique and interesting genders,


I saw the double THEM, walking briskly by me, much to my delight.

Well, I liked the way they walked with confident, long strides

And, completely oblivious to the stares and gawks of the passers-by.

Well, maybe not so completely oblivious and,

A delight, nevertheless.

You ever try getting a Coca-Cola out of a CIRIS vending machine?

Ain't going to happen.

Not until hell freezes over.

And, certainly not before you can get water out of a stone can you quench your thirst with a candle.

Photo was taken at a church along las Ramblas.

A rainbow seen at the corner of la Avenida Diagonal y la Passeig de Gràcia.

A moment that was cleverly not staged by me.

Tasty Manicure


 Chess can certainly be a nail-biting experience.

I know. I've played, and in some circles I'm considered a master of dynamic proportions with a score of 700!

Ok. Ok. Seven hundred is not a great number; not even mediocre. I think that 700 is a number you are given when you first start out and for some of us, it's downhill after the initial game.

el mercado de Puigmartí

El mercado de Puigmartí is a wonderful market, great vendors, marvelous food and a touch of the past.


Puigmartí is located in el Barrio de Gràcia here in Barcelona.

I suggest you get there as soon as possible, before, if ever, this market is modernized.

He gave me A finger!

 A friendly gesture that says, Hi! How you doin'?

He gave me A finger!

I love workers such as those in the photo. 

More often than not, I get a smile, a pose and a wave.

Four My Eyes Only

Well, it finally happened.

Toys like computers, ipads, iphones, ipods, and fancy cameras have reeked havoc on my eyes.

I thought I had a clear defined photo of a dapper young man.

Love Knot!

Ah, young love! 

Love Knot!

Two kids, resting on a church step, oblivious to their surroundings in twisted perfection.

If I was lucky to be in their position today, I'd unfortunately need help straightening up.

An Elephant on Her Back

Hey! I'm no fashionista by any stretch of the imagination,


 An Elephant on Her Back

Does 'you are what you wear' hold true in some situations?

I'm going to be more careful from now on.
