Street Art and Street Photography in Barcelona

I went to Barcelona, rented a bicycle and spent most of my time making street photographs of life and art all around this astonishingly charismatic city.

Unusually warm spring weather gave me the opportunity for continuous bicycle touring around town. Starting from nearby hill tops, exploring the narrow old town streets and ending up at the city beach. This city offers a unique mix of history, art and modern architecture (urban design). Truly a must see, done that thing!
