Many shadows in one shot in Barcelona

                              Frederich Soler, a great exponent of Catalan romantic theatre.                                                     Photo by Richard Schear, Barcelona, 2008



During our week in the south of France in April, 2011, we weren't very far from Barcelona,
a city we really enjoyed when we stayed there in 2008.
We talked about taking a train from Perpignan to Barcelona, but never did. This shot is from '08.

A nice monument sitting in the shade of a tree.

excellent shadow shot.
I don't like the modern house behind it, much prefer the ornate ones on the right.

The shadows of the parking garage are deep and gloomy. That building seems out of place there, to my way of thinking.

Beautiful Kay! Isn't it fun to find pictures in your files that work for sharing like this? I'm glad you found it.

As I've only traveled/lived in the U.S. and Canada, I love the chance to look at the photos on your blog. Nice shadows!

A train trip woulsmall d be fun I think. I went on one as a child to my grandmother's and still remember it. We have so much fun watching the trains pass from our boat and waving to the engineer and passengers. They always give us a toot of the horn. Great fun! - Margy

What terrific contrast there are in this photo. Not only the shadows on the statue, but the contrast between the statue and the two buildings behind it.

Nice capture.

I think I was in Barcelona when I was 22 or something, I don't remember anything, so it's good to see at least something now !

Wonderful picture with shadows and lights in perfect harmony!

Ohh!!! I find that shadow a little spooky and eerie. It's like a giant, skeletal hand reaching down from the heavens. The Grim Reaper? It made me shiver just looking at it. Amazing how we each can interpret something in a different way, based on our perspective.

I really like the way the shadows play across the statue, it brings out textures in the stone. Great shadow shot.
