2020-02-19  STREET ACTION IN BARCELONA

I had one hour for street photography before my appointment at the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona. I nearly shot the battery of my Leica X Vario down, so many opportunities for shooting on the streets. On the photo is the dynamic of the cyclists. In the foreground a scooter. On the left a passenger in a hurry. Typical street action in Barcelona.

2020-02-06  PLACA DE LA UNIVERSITAT

It was only a short walking distance to the Plaza de la Universitat in Barcelona. I had about one hour until the invitation for dinner in the Hard Rock Cafe. What could be better than street photography? For my luggage, only minimal weight was allowed in the plane; I had my Leica X Vario with me. It did a great job. For faster photos and quick spots, I shot on A-mode with shutter and aperture and Auto ISO, I usually do it mostly manual. You have to adapt to the conditions to get the best out of the scenes. With steady action around you and limited time, these settings are preferable.

2020-02-01  MAN SITTING IN A BAR IN BARCELONA

I had two hours of spare time after the Cisco Live congress. After taking my camera from the hotel room and was shortly after that involved in street photography. I was walking up and down the “Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes” like crazy. Shooting through the windows of shops and bars brings you the reflections of the streets on the shop windows and the classical motive of a man sitting on a bar counter.

2019-07-13 NIGHTLY STREETS IN BARCELONA

Even in January, it had pleasant temperatures in the nighttime Barcelona. I had my mini tripod with me and was able to create new perspectives. At times you should leave the comfort zone and look for the proximity to the road. 🙂

2019-06-23 BLACK NIGHT

The streets of the night, one of my favorite motives. I had my camera on a tripod positioned and experimented with the shutter speeds to get the optimal strip of taillights as a contrast to the darkness of the night and the street.

2019-06-08 BARCELONA STREET

Barcelona brought me many ideas for new compositions of photography. The architecture harmonizes with the scenes on the street. There I never stopped shooting photos. 🙂

2019-05-31 EVENING IN BARCELONA

The warm evening sun fills this plaza in Barcelona. I had two hours waiting time for dinner with my colleagues, where I explored the surroundings with my camera. I was ready for street-photography and was happy about the many scenes that were offered me.

Sunbeams, a driving taxi in roundabout traffic, a piece of architecture and the city of Barcelona combined in one photo. That was my evening job on the way to my hotel.

2019-05-20 SUNSET IN BARCELONA

The warm sunset fills your body, I loved this evening walk back to the hotel. These 2 miles brought me the sunset, great architecture and the streets with the motor-bikers. From time to time I stopped for a photo or a coffee. A mini adventure which I wouldn’t miss.

2019-05-17 THE STREETS OF BARCELONA

The warm climate and the sheer speed are the reasons why so many motor-scooters are on the move on the streets of Barcelona. It’s easy to maneuver around the waiting cars and get at the pole positions at the stop lines before the traffic lights. Spain and Italy are the classic countries with more motorcycles and scooters on the street than cars.
