Kid at Las Glorias Shopping Center

Kid at Las Glorias Shopping Center, Barcelona

Every shopping center shall have a fountain, according to the marketing gurus. It shall be placed at the very center of the premises. Then there shall be McDonalds, KFC and Burger Kings. Kids shall come by the dozen. Let them kids splash or trample on water, happy parents prove to be big spenders.

The picture was taken in Las Glorias Shopping Center at Diagonal Avenue, near Agbar Tower. I like it because it was just a lonely kid staring at the jet of water in the middle of a hypnotic trance.

See Picture of Las Glorias Shopping Center on a Google Earth Map.


  1. Nice shot! By the way, how long did it take until the kid got all wet? Or was he an amazingly well-behaved child who just looks but doesn't touch?

  3. You chose the right moment to take the photograph.

  4. I don´t know Carmen but I guess not much, remember he was in a trance though.-)

    I share your belief that marketeers place fountains for a reason!
