Metal Art at La Rambla, Barcelona

Metal Art at La Rambla

Wandering along Las Ramblas I found these rusty metallic objects obviously piled up there to be used by one of the many human statues, though this time I couldn't spot the artist. I particularly like this sort of metal Chucky with trumpet.


  1. what interesting things you find!

  2. oxide is a shape of art I enhoy so much. Its color is unique. I like the chair, for me it represents and endless hope.

    Maybe he said the hell with, gave up and is looking for a real job, one that pays money AND satisfies his artistic needs. :0)

  4. Technically, a really fine shot, so sharp,such colours, so different as a subject.
    Oxide, the formal latinate word, is so cold. Me, the kind of guy I am, I've always been a fan of the usual English word: rust. It is more easily & more commonly used for metaphor, colloq.idiom poetry.
    A couple of song titles: "Rust Never Sleeps" (Neil Young; maybe that was just an album title?);"Diamonds & Rust" Joan (Baez) & a fab French one, "La Rouille" (Maxime Le Forestier)Such connotations for what kind of happens.........

    Was this sharpened in software? It looks a little oversharpened to me...

  8. Abhi, this was my old camera. More than oversharpened it behaves ackwardly. Blurred in the foreground and randomly oversharpened in the background. I see what you mean. Maybe that's why I chose it for the awful theme at Photofriday. Thanks for your sincere review.
