Let's do like I wasn't absent for 5 years... When I left to Greece in 2009 I was posting photos from my holidays in Spain the year before, where I had the pleasure to meet Bulent Atalay, who was with me when I shot this photo in La Rambla de Barcelona. Interestingly, it was shot exactly 6 years ago. I only noticed that when I uploaded it.

Hello dear José,
How wonderful to see you back. I remember this day well, as we walked up the Ramblas. I am not very active in TE, with so many friends who have flown by me in contributing photos, and others who have dropped out. Someone recently referred to the "Golden Age of Trekearth," which is of course when our generation was quite active. I hope your family is well. Please, give my warm regards to everyone,

Hello Jose, Nice memories from the meeting with Bulent. Amazing street artists. How creative they are. Imagine to prepare for this. Was he also selling these vegetables? I think that not. Excellent composition.
Warm regrads MAlgo

A beautiful portrait of this woman and her most unusual costume. Your depth of field is perfectly done, her face is crystal clear and pin sharp, while there is an interesting blur on a lot of the surroundings making the image seem a little surreal. Her smile is very genuine and welcoming too. Very pleasing central composition works a treat too.
All the best

This is an interesting and indeed very colourful street-photo. I am amazed to what extremes some perfomers go to create attention and earn a pitifl amount of money. Liife is hard.

I am agree with Dear Bulent about the "Golden Age of Trekearth," I am almost of the first year active on these site, but I place but one picture every week as retired man.
I remains quiet and I have here a lot learned about the world.
These picture is very clear and good composition.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

hey jose! welcome back after 2 years (or 5?) this is a wonderful oldie, so colorful in la rambla style. pin sharp lady amongst soft dof and motion blurs, this is a very good result. i suppose you should also have collected some tens of thousands of new photos to keep you up with "new TE" :)

Fantastic image with this static mime artist, in this case playing a fruit vendor, as in the nearby Boqueria market.
Splendid range of colors.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a nice day.

Hola Jose, de vuelta por estos lares con esa estupenda foto de alguno de los personajes que pueblan La Rambla. Estupenda foto y divertida.
Yo llevaba sin entrar por aquí desde hace unos dos años y medio...no se si volveré.

Não conheço Barcelona mas deve ter coisas fantásticas. Isto é sem dúvida uma ideia bem original e colorida. Gosto do fundo desfocado e da luz. A artista parece satisfeita por estar a ser fotografada.

Ficou muito bonito o contraste das cores mais suaves do fundo com os detalhes das frutas, e muito interessante também a arte! Excelente profundidade de campo para dar destaque à artista! Belo trabalho!

Hard to ignore this one in your gallery, the instant assault of colors is tremendous. :) It really is an eye-catching image, but even more so for you as the photographer, a personal story and fond memory...making it all the more pleasurable to recount.
The smart depth of field brings every little detail and color to the forefront, while still allowing for adequate background interest. Fun, cheerful and even a bit unusual for good measure. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

I feel a twinge of envy each time I see a photograph of Barcelona, for I enjoyed my one visit there so much!
This is such a colourful photograph, reminiscent of the people and the scenery. I like how you have used a shallow dof, bringing out the details of the seller and her produce whilst creating a very unobtrusive b/g.
Have a lovely day,
