From a distance an interesting architectural sun shade for a plaza, from directly under it a face lit from behind by the sun. Barcelona is filled with delightful human constructions, and may are great for skateboarding.
Barcelona is great for walking around and discovering it's charms.
I hooked up with Alex Castañeda
and Javier Sarmiento
and some of their friends who agreed to take me around to some skate spots and let me shoot photos of them skating. This is the insanely good Javier on via Laietana
They changed the Big 4 stairs at the back of the famous MACBA skate spot, but neglected to make it un-skatable, in fact they made it easier to skate, changing it to a nice 3 stair gap. And of course there were kids there skating. This kid is trying a varial heelflip.
Alex Castañeda cruises a feeble at the Barcelonetta spot.
Alex does a long feeble grind to kickflip out...
Javier, scorches a tail slide at the Arco (Arc de Triomf
back smith at the Arco banks.
