Street Artist Photo II

It is a common belief that here in Spain we go nuts about bullfights, flamenco and spend a lot of time enjoying our siesta, nothing more far from reality. As you saw yesterday in my previous post Las Arenas...we have less bullrings (I have never been to a Plaza de Toros in my life), flamenco is being blended with pop, rock, salsa or even jazz and of course we don´t have time for siesta anymore, hummm, that, I do miss. This bailaor of flamenco (flamenco dancer) was performing near the end of Las Ramblas, suddenly he jumps, I shoot and notice on my screen that his legs were not even blurred in the picture. You have to admit that good dancers sometimes flow in the air.

  2. Well I think that's an outrage! There should be a complaint to the E.U. that siestas have gone the way of the 2hour lunch in France...non-existing. Maybe people should do more flameco so that they are so tired they HAVE to take a siesta. Or go the French way and go on strike for more siestas!

  5. Well I said no siesta but fiestas (parties) we have a lot! Ha,ha, yes I'm not in Spain, you caught me on that. I didn´t mean to destroy your illusions I just wanted to mention the cliches. Barcelona is great, if you come you won´t regret it!

  7. Nicely timed. Interesting to see that the dancer is captured absolutely sharp in the air. Whenever I have attempted to click a jump, I've messed it up. That's may be because I plan it and do... :-)
