The Monochrome Experience: Delicious

There are conjunctions that are amazing and the camera manages to register: the relationship of silver sunglasses and the texture of the shell of an oyster. I would never get tired of looking at this picture because it transmits innumerable effects: laughter, surprise, stupefaction, hunger, seafood, aphrodisiac, and so on. The rest of the photographs have another reading: the eastern shaved head with its chiaroscuro, the strange position of the young man’s hand, the gesture of displeasure of the woman over something that we ignore. Maybe she does not like raw, live and lemon oysters.

The Monochrome Experience: La Boqueria

La Boqueria is the most famous market in Barcelona around the world. The city center beats every day, with more than 200 vendors for their blinds, smells, meals and cuisine. A festival for the senses… This is the other entrance.

The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues in White Cloth and Nets

Modern art visited the Columbus monument in Barcelona. A necessary restoration of the statues of the base (66 ft) wide circle, with four staircases. For me, in my humble opinion, now the statues from the buttresses and against the pedestal reach the top artistic zenith. They should always be like that: wrapped in white fabrics and knotted networks. The viewer imagines the interior they hide, emulating the artistic works of Christo Javacheff. Awesome!

The Monochrome Experience: Giants

Photographing giants is a festive activity that modifies our human scale. We are insignificant if we compare ourselves with them. They dance and wear their best clothes. It is something magnificent that allows us to daydream and forget the gear of wealth redistribution and the intrusive digital marketing.

The Monochrome Experience: Up

Seeing the world on the shoulders of the father or mother is a wonderful thing. Some of us hardly remember the beautiful views, there, in the heights. These privileged views only run for a short period. Because the boy or girl grows and gain weight, which contributes to abandon childhood in some way and enter the territory of reality. Parents are no longer giants and little ones have become teenagers.

The Monochrome Experience: Strange Things

Sometimes photographs capture strange situations. The inflatable helicopter patrolling the city. A bike that looks like a motorcycle. A woman with sunglasses who put her hand on her forehead so as not to be blinded by light. The crosswalk crowded with babies in strollers…
