2018-10-24   THE WAY HOME TO THE HOTEL

By | 2018-10-23T20:52:02+00:00 October 24th, 2018|Barcelona|

From the “Cisco Live” conference we chose the foot walk back to the hotel. That was fully in my interest because I could take some photos of the great architecture of Barcelona, while my colleagues were talking about the upcoming evening activities. Currently, I am thinking of attending “Cisco Live” again; it’s only three months until the event starts. And a good time to take some evening photos of the city.  🙂

2018-09-22   MOON OVER BARCELONA

By | 2018-09-09T18:50:34+00:00 September 21st, 2018|Barcelona|

Suddenly it was middle in the night during my photo tour, and surprisingly, I saw the full moon. At this time I was at the “Placa de les Cascades” and shooting in all cardinal directions with my tripod. In the direction where the moon was visible, there was that parkway on the bottom and some skyscrapers in the middle of the photo. The sky was completely blue, without a cloud, it made room for the moon to shine.

2018-09-10   AFTER DINNER IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-09-09T08:35:23+00:00 September 9th, 2018|Barcelona|

After dinner my colleagues were going into their hotel rooms, it was already 11 pm. I added 1 hour for a photo tour, I was lucky, the hotel was near the Placa de Espana. Armed with my Sony A7R II and a mini tripod I got ready for some night shots. Looking after staircases with concrete sockets was my first agenda, then I tried to get the right composition and prepared the camera settings for long-term exposure.

2018-08-26   BARCELONA FROM PLACA DE LES CASCADES

By | 2018-08-25T10:22:27+00:00 August 25th, 2018|Barcelona|

The walking tour upstairs to the Placa de les Cascades was only about 20 minutes from my hotel. Since I was there in January, the waterfalls over the big stairs were off. They are open only during spring until fall. However, I got a great view over the city and started to shoot some photos with my tripod in all directions. Even in January, there are nice temperatures, and I extended my photo walk until late at night.

2018-08-11   THE EVERLASTING CHURCH

By | 2018-08-10T18:38:55+00:00 August 10th, 2018|Barcelona|

After a building time for more than hundred years, and a prolonged end in the year 2026, the Sagrada Familia is one of the world wonders. With its unique architectural style from Antoni Gaudi, it impresses spectators from the whole world. I used a 3-hour spare time from a congress to visit the interiors. It wasn’t easy to decide, what to photograph first. So I started with my entry point and made a step by step tour, where I made panoramas, wide angle, low light, root top-photos from all kind of angels I could imagine.

2018-04-26   NIGHTLY STREET IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-04-25T19:27:13+00:00 April 26th, 2018|Barcelona|

For this photo, I used my mini-tripod at street-level to shoot that nightly street, which leads to the Placa de les Cascades. I had dinner already, my colleagues were on the way to the hotel, I took the way to the Placa Espana.  It was already 11 pm, traffic was low and the streets deserted. The photo session could begin.

2018-04-11   WALKING OUT OF THE TAPAS RESTAURANT

By | 2018-04-10T19:53:04+00:00 April 11th, 2018|Barcelona|

I had an invitation for a tapas late-lunch in Barcelona. The restaurant was in a side street of the La Rambla so that I couldn’t find it immediately. I consulted Google Maps and followed the instructions. It was a diverse tapas menu, with many small bowls where you could discover spicy sausages, fried calamari, pickles, fries with cheese and smoked beef in Spanish sauce. During a walk through the restaurant, which was a parking garage before :-), I shot a photo of the snack bar.

2018-03-21   NIGHTLY WALK IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-03-20T20:44:02+00:00 March 21st, 2018|Barcelona|

Here I placed my mini-tripod on the floor to get a different view of the walkway with the street-lights. The warm weather on that January night brought an extensive photo tour where I could explore a dozen different locations. I tried all kind of exposure settings, hdr-settings, f-stops and viewing angles. Such photo nights should happen more often!

2018-03-15   THE REMARKABLE PARK

By | 2018-03-14T19:41:29+00:00 March 15th, 2018|Barcelona|

I arrived at the park entry via taxi. There is no Uber in Barcelona; they banned it. Many parts of Park Güell were under construction this year in January. Nevertheless, I was eager to take the shots I had in my mind before entering the park. For the heart of the park, you have to pay an entry fee, a more extensive area surrounding is free of charge. For the Gaudi art-work made from tiles and colored stones, you have to enter the inner circle.

2018-03-13   NIGHTLY WAY IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-03-12T20:41:09+00:00 March 13th, 2018|Barcelona|

I shot his photo near the Placa de Les Cascades on a nightly walk in January. I visited Barcelona to attend the Cisco Live event. The weather was excellent, a light jacket or a sports coat was enough for the evening temperatures. I had my camera mounted with the mini-tripod, so I was ready for night shooting with different compositions.
