The Old Man and the Sea

Yet another shot of the beach in Barcelona city. I was trying to capture that quite restrictive sign post using the sea and the rocks as a background when this old man suddenly appeared on the corner of my eye. I had nothing but the sign in my picture and that was not too much appealing so instead of taking some steps back which would make the man notice I zoomed out and included him in my picture to improve composition.


  1. Hola!
    No se puede nadar por allí, no puedes pescar y...? no puedes estar ahi? La primera prohibición muestra una silueta tachada? Pero la foto es rebelde porque ahí está el hombre parado, y a lo lejos sale gente pescando... sólo faltaria un nadador atravesando el mar en ese momento! Me gusta esta foto!
    un saludo!

    You can't swim there, you can't fish there and...? You can't stay there? One of the restrictions in the static sign shows a man corrected. Even that is funny because the man stayed there, and there's people fishing too a little far away. Only a swimmer is absent! Like this photo!

  2. What a happy coincidence that the man stepped into your view. It makes a perfect picture, and I love the title.
