This shot was taken in the park outside Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece that will take 144 years to create, but as Gaudi once famously joked ~ his client, God, "was is in no hurry."
Dismayed (once again) by the long lines of tourists waiting to get in, I opted instead for a gelato in the shady park, and the opportunity to do a little people watching...

Hi, Kristin, my neighbor today,
I see you have good collection of the photos with the couples of lovers. Good idea, excellent realisation. Another interesting report from Barcelona.
Best wishes from Russia!

Magnifique photo d'amoureux en N/B, qui me rappelle le te temps où j'en faisais. Pauvre amoureux, ils ne doivent pas avoir chauds sur le banc dans la neige. Moi je serais gelé en culottes courtes et gilet à manches courtes, Breeeee….. Beau fond d'arbres verglacés. Je vois que le téléphone cellulaire est à la mode la-bas aussi.
Tous mes compliments et bonne journée,

hi kris. looking at your photos, one could have the right to claim that barcelona had the potential to be the most populous city in the world: everybody loves somebody! alas, that love is demographically in vain... i guess they always forget visiting new orleans, where people tend to know how to make babies. thanks to you, i could never make such a connection before running into your gallery :))

Another fine candid of shady characters maybe, so well captured as they seem totally oblivious with the interaction going on between the loving couple in the bg and the passer-by- a serious looking guy with iph. I think a very brave spot if you ask me! but it's good work is all about people watching and people study.
Well watched, I love the positioning, exposure and pp mono treatment. Well captured. Congrats :))

Well, going to the famous place in high season can be hard. i also do not like the herds of tourists and enjoy being somewhere with less people. but you used your time in Barcelona very well. gelato, why not and observing people is also very interesting. Nice romantic scene, rather not possible in winter. Interesting white leaves of the trees.
Warm regrads Malgo
