Barcelona – Black and White

I have been away on vacation in the US for two weeks during which period I have over 600 pictures to process and sift through. It will be some time before those pictures make it to this blog. Therefore, here are some pictures from my trip to Barcelona 3 weeks ago.

Gothic Quarter, Barcelona – Part 2

The gothic quarter of Barcelona (or Barri Gotic in Catalan) is the oldest part of Barcelona. It is a labyrinth of small alleys and winding streets offering excellent opportunities for photography. The gothic quarter dates back to the roman times and beyond and retains a charming character. I didn’t have anything else but my iPhone for this trip and these pictures are a result of post-processing in a custom workflow in NIK software.
