I will remember mostly two things of my recent trip to Barcelona: love and the smell of sea.
I travelled to one of my dearest cities mainly to shoot a wedding with Emma. And what a wedding! I went there as a photographer, but came back with new friends, an enlarged second family, and a sense of elation. I’ve never seen so much love and fun, all mixed together to create the real perfect day (here’s a sneak peek of the wedding).
And the smell of sea. I had missed it for so long. The last day I was there I took a walk with my second mum (I’m sure you won’t mind if I call you like this, Cristina!) along the sea. It was a bright and glorious sunny day, a bit chilly but even more enjoyable because of that. I had walked there many times, but I loved it nonetheless, and how good it felt to smell something that I will always associate to my childhood and summer holidays.
I must confess I didn’t take many pictures of Barcelona (the wedding drained me in some sort of way), but this image is the one I cherish the most.
Simple things, like a feeling, a walk along the sea and an ice cream… with a perfect scenery.
