Young Girl Climbing on Rocks at Park Guell [Barcelona, Spain]


I was lucky to capture this young girl the other day at Park Guell while she was climbing on the rocks of the arcade. I certify she was not my model and that this is a spur of the moment picture although the pose is so perfect that it seems prearranged. Fortunately enough, she was wearing a nice color dress, a hat and a handbag which made the picture even more interesting from the point of view of kids photography. With her natural pose and the texture of the rocky background it was pretty easy to compose in this case. I like the fact that she is staring vacantly into space in the middle of a silent game perhaps. I admire the ability of kids to find happiness in the most boring things: for example, climbing on a rock.


  1. Sometimes being there at the right moment produes wonderful results, as in this case. Great capture and delightful subject.

  2. very nice photo, it really looks like a photo shoot for a kid's dress, nice find! =)

  4. Wow, this is perfect. I don't know how it could have been better even if she was your model and you posed her for the shot.

    Excellent shot :)

    Surreal, she looks in the wrong place at the right time Carlos.

    Nice range of warm hues and textures.

  7. It looks a week bit precarious so I assume it is not far to the ground.

  8. Yes, you caught a magical moment. I like how you always link to other places in your blogs. Does this assist you with Google? Just curious.
