@Pavan Kaul: It was the midday sun ... very bad for portraits ... but as we had awnings over something could be done! I was very interested in the characters who visit these markets of old books! Thanks you very much Pavan! Best regards! Adela

Matt from San Mateo, United States

Really like the city mood, in this shot you've managed to invoke the whole "street shopping in a big city" type of feeling. i really like the man's backlit head, great job!

Chris from Haute Loire, France

Retour à la couleur... le rouge et le jaune se répondent. Le soleil est revenu à Barcelona... nous sommes loin de l'ambiance eneigée ! La ville retrouve l'ébullition et ses occupations. Le portrait reprend ses droits...
Belle journée chère Adela. Je t'embrasse.

20 Mar 2010 6:12am

@Chris: Je vois que vous comprenez mon changement d'humeur! Retour de la couleur et la lumière... arrivée du printemps. Tout va mieux! La vie est plus douce... le soleil est radieux... nous devenons aveugles!... mais vaut la peine! Je t'embrasse chère Chris! Bonne journée à toi!

Sonia Nansid from Stockholm, Sweden

Si si si, és col leccionista d'estampes al 100%. El mercat de Sant Antoni és tot un món en si mateix, un microcosmos de personatges i de tafaners. De fet jo sóc de Barcelona i vaig viure uns anys al Raval. Després de donar la volta al mercat, a poc a poc, com si d'una processó de Setmana Santa es tractés, seure a la terrassa del Tres Tombs era tot un plaer. Gràcies de nou per ajudar-me a treure la pols als vells records.

20 Mar 2010 8:54am

@Sonia Nansid: Un paper a la mà... que tinc o que em falta! És un lloc encantador Sonia el matí del diumenge al mercat de Sant Antoni! envoltat de tafaners i de buscadors de "tresors" també dels amants del que no és seu!!! Un lloc de tensions! Veig que recordes bé el lloc... els Tres Tombs... un bon cafè a la fresca! Un plaer per a mi la teva evocació... des de Stockholm!!! Una abraçada molt forta amiga Sonia! Bon cap de setmana! Adela

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Belén from Salamanca, Spain

Ya va apareciendo el sol de primavera, tremenda Adela y veo que has cogido con ánimo renovado tu cámara para dibujar la luz, con la maestría que te caracteriza:). Recibe un saludo fuerte desde tierras meseteñas.

20 Mar 2010 9:41am

@Belén: Belén... una nueva faceta la que destapas aquí, eres una buena literata... lo del ánimo renovado con la llegada de la primavera... quizás llegará... de momento es el de siempre... quizás tengas razón con lo del color! Gracias por pasarte por aquí y recibe mi sentido abrazo!

Son air concentré montre à quel point la chasse au trésor est sérieuse ! :-) J'aime beaucoup sa chevelure echevelée baignée de lumière et le souci du détail qui compose ce portrait ! :-)
