I love to photograph early in the morning its very hard to capture the sounds and smells I experience. During the early morning you can smell the coffee brewing and hear the sounds of people opening up their shutters on their windows and taking that first breath of fresh air. This small moment I captured on the island of Burano. I was photographing the door and all of the sudden the old woman came out to clean her front walkway. She was there for a brief moment that I could capture her and then she was gone again.
I was lucky enough to have a tour guide that was born and raised in Barcelona. We found this very narrow street that had laundry hanging everywhere. Ramon told me it was very rare in Barcelona to find laundry hanging on the outside balconies this way. Its more common to find it in the countryside.

My days in Barcelona have come to an end. I have visited many places in the city that I can’t wait to share with you. They will most likely be after I return from my trip. Through winding roads of the Gothic barrio and Born I have many new favorite places that are off the beaten path for the tourist.
A few days ago I came across an older woman looking out of her balcony. It was the perfect photographic opportunity but she was a very bitter woman. Today I came across the same woman, I waved and she waved back. She actually started jumping up and down and clapping her hands in excitement to see me. Her name is Helena. She posed for the photograph and blew me kisses.
Coming from Lisbon where everything was full of color I thought I would post something a little different. I arrived late last night in Barcelona and set off to explore with a friend this morning. We ate baby squid and drank white wine at the Boqueria. There will be a whole post dedicated to the Boqueria because it deserves it!! Here is a little glimpse of Barcelona in black and white.
I arrived in Madrid Spain early this morning. The flight seemed to go by so quickly and before you know it I was in Spain. I was off to explore early this morning. This city is so full of color. Its really beautiful. You will see from a lot of my photographs from this city that I love all the balconies. It seems everyone here has an iron balcony to open their window on the city.
