Carrer del Bisbe

This image was taken in the gothic section of Barcelona on my last night there. I was standing next to the cathedral listening to musicians and taking photos of people walking down Carrer del Bisbe.

Coming from North America, this is an enchanting place. I can't describe it in words, I try with pictures, and yet it still falls short. You have to experience it for yourself. I'll be going back in a couple of months, so I hope to get out in the gothic section again.

Anyway, this is a street scene, a night scene, and an architecture scene all wrapped into a single image. I'm not sure what to call it, but it's a lot of fun. For me, the appeal is shooting at night when everything takes on an almost mythical quality. You can imagine the same spot hundreds of years ago and see with your mind's eye the same scenes, unchanged over the centuries.
