Opposite Ways, Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona

Crosswalk at Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona [enlarge]

People come and go, establishing strange symmetries sometimes, like atoms in a formula, apparently chaotic and yet so harmonious and linked. People have lives of their own, walking in opposite ways, in opposite directions and yet they are part of the same project, human existence. Here is a good example at a pedestrian crossing in Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona.


  1. Qué preciosidad!

  2. This is marvelous. I would love to stand on that exact street corner and just feel Barcelona! Your images and words always have such clarity.

    Interestingly, last night I was browsing the ArtQuiver site and enjoyed the "Pedestrian" series by an artist named Jim Zwadlo. These paintings are much like what you describe in this post...

  3. I love the urban feel of this photo! Looks like a great place for a morning walk!
