Paella Menus at La Barceloneta: Lover's Choice

Lovers kissing at Paella restaurant, Barceloneta

On a lovely sunny day of April, tourists and locals alike start storming the streets of La Barceloneta not only to have a first rendezvous with the beach but also to frequent one of the many restaurants along the promenade in front of the marina. Not that all locals are prone to choose at random in that area as it is well known that many of those restaurants offer pricey menus and could do better with the same old ingredients. The amount of tourists is so gargantuan that it is better to sit and catch the easy fish without a bait than to learn the art of angling. Of course there are nice restaurants along the walk, I have been there sometimes but be careful. Anyway, no matter the quality and the good taste or not, those terraces with people basking in the sun while having some succulent paella and drinking sangria do create a wonderful scene for the expectator's eye on the way to the waterfront. These lovers and their magic kiss unknowingly portray the happy atmosphere of a perfect day of Spring when you are about to enjoy the perfect meal with the perfect sight. On the glass panel, the paella menu, luring or deterring, make your choice.

Thanks RedPat!
Lydia, unfortunately I was just passing by so this was mere street photography. If they were to claim it or would like to have it, of course I'd be happy to send them a copy. It happened to me once, someone complained and I had to finally blur their faces. Sometimes when you take street photos you don't stop to ask for permission. People would change their expression and it would end up being a different scene. Of course I could tell them later but normally you don't do that if you steal the moment. It is difficult I guess.
