Almost a couple of weeks after the terrible attacks the Ramblas suffered, I must admit there is something odd in the air. Luckily the Ramblas have a strong personality and are still crowded with people. However, it didn't feel right for me to step into that street and approach strangers as we usually do. So this time I decided to stay in the surrounding streets. As always, tourists and foreigners prove to be the nicest subjects to approach. Open-minded, collaborative and always willing to help us in our street photography projects. Here are the ones who said yes this time. Thank you very much.

"No hay extraños aquí; sólo amigos que aún no conoces." - Yeats

Después de casi un par de semanas desde los atentados de las Ramblas, debo admitir que aún se respira algo raro en el ambiente. Sin embargo, las Ramblas tienen su personalísimo carácter y siguen atestadas de gente. Pese a ello, no me sentía cómoda aventurándome en ellas como solía hacer antes para acercarme a fotografiar desconocidos. Así que en esta ocasión me quedé en las calles del alrededor. Como siempre, los turistas y extranjeros fueron los mejores candidatos: abiertos, colaboradores y siempre dispuestos a ayudarnos en nuestros proyectos de fotografía de calle. Dejo por aquí las que dijeron sí esta vez. Muchas gracias por su colaboración.

Pudding Café Barcelona http://silviamoralesphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/8/pudding-caf-barcelona Pudding Café Hogwarts

Diagonal, 515


Era una visita pendiente: el Pudding Café de Diagonal... Una cafetería bastante grande y casi a tope en una mañana cualquiera de verano: buen café, tartas caseras, mucho té y paredes repletas de libros. Un sitio agradable, repleto de incondicionales de Harry Potter (turistas y no turistas) caracterizados por ir en grupo y con móvil-cámara en mano. Aquí os dejo algunas fotos... ¡Volveremos! Hay que probar esa tarta de chocolate...

She was on tour and besides her concerts, she performed some songs at the Italian Institute of Culture (Istituto Italiano di Cultura). Here are some of the pictures I took there.

5 Recent Movies Recommended for Photographers http://silviamoralesphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/7/movies  

It is a dull and rainy weekend in Barcelona... The perfect excuse for remaining at home and catch up with some nice movies. That's why, I decided to (finally) update this website and recommend you some films which may be of interest for photographers. There are countless lists of recommended movies ABOUT photographers and photography (the last one is "Le Sel de la Terre" about S. Salgado), but those are not the ones I'll include here....
The ones I recommend here are movies that caught my eye for their photo composition, colors, light and, well, all the elements that contribute to the artistic photography of films. 
If you take a look at my pictures, you will see that I try to toy with color and saturation, and also I have some preference over vintage hues. I guess that this, along with composition, is what sparks my visual interest in a film. 
So I thought I would share with you these movies, since they could be useful/inspirational for some of you too.
Here I am not talking about good plots or scripts...Here I JUST focus on the photography-related aspects.
Enjoy and keep shootin' :)
Here are the movies (in random order).
1) Ida by Pawel Pawlikowki (Polish film). Good for: Black and white style. (Showing on Cinemes Texas soon)

2) Loreak by Jon Garaño (Spanish/Basque movie). Good for: portrait composition. (Showing now in Cinemes Maldà)

3) Grand Hotel Budapest by Wes Anderson. Good for: color composition.
4) The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie). Good for: color composition, landscapes. (Available on DVD)


5) Stories We Tell by Sarah Poley Good for: street/journalism-like photography and a great soundtrack :) (Available on DVD)
