This is a detail of Barcelona Heron City, a big shopping center in Nou Barris district. I have shown you some other images about this leisure complex that I usually visit when I go to the movies (today we saw Night at the Museum). As my photo stock keeps diminishing I took my camera just in case. We stepped out of the cinema, and the first thing I saw were these red neons on those atrezzo palm trees. No sooner I shot them and got my eye out of the viewfinder, two ex-disco goons now acting as shop private guards came to me and said, "hey, you can shoot people but not panos of Heron City. What's wrong with taking pictures of a shopping center anyway? Well guys I think you should read this item of news: Gerald Ronson, the developer has agreed a deal with Australian investment firm Babcock & Brown to sell Heron City in Barcelona, its flagship leisure and retail scheme, for around €140m (£95m).
