Nothing special scene from the street in Barcelona. But look a bit carefully. Have you ever seen the big street lamp and the fountain below? I found it an original idea.

Bigger beta picture

In black and white it looks nice too

Josep explained me that it is famous fountain.
The fountain is one of the symbols of Barcelona, a meeting place for locals and visitors alike where people also flock to celebrate the victories of the Catalan team, Futbol Club Barcelona, Barça. The Canaletes Fountain has become one of Barcelona's most visited landmarks. It also conceals a history that is closely associated with the old town's water supply.

The popular name Canaletes has direct associations with the sporting victories of the local team, Fútbol Club Barcelona. The followers of Barça have gathered here since the early 20th century. As long ago as the 1930s Barça fans, known as "culers", flocked to La Rambla to find out their team's scores. These would be written on a blackboard right in front of the offices of the newspaper La Rambla, which stood on this spot. Legend says that anyone who drinks from the fountain will fall in love with Barcelona and return to the city time and time again.
The dog will return, but I didn't know the legend ...

Hello Malgo,
Barcelona is a vibrant and colorful town, and your street picture shows this as evidence. The fountain/lamp-post is elegant and attractive, for photographer and also for the dog...
Marvelous sight, well rendered.

Hi Malgo,very nice capture from the ramblas with a look of the curious fountain under the lamp. I remember when i was there the first time,in a cold winter Monday and the ramblas were completely deserts, the opposite of what i thought to find...ehehe...great shot and good B/W in the WS too. Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Czesc Malgosiu!
Fajny reporterski strzal.
Ciekawa scenka z ulicy.
LAdna latarnia.

Hello Malgo,
This is a very enjoyable street photo with a fine view of the dog quenching its thirst. I agree that it's a very original lamppost. Let's hope nothing goes wrong technically so the water leads the electricity. If you ask György or Will I am sure they would say that everything looks nice in black and white.
Kind regards,

Bonjour, chère Malgo,
Qu'elle soit en couleur, en noir et blanc, en plus grande, le résultat est toujours le même, la beauté environnementale est toujours présente, et j'ai même l'impression d'être dans un quartier parisien, hormis cette très belle fontaine;

Hello Malgo,

I am not big fan of black and white pictures.
But your main picture is truly beautiful.
A nice daily life picture with the dog to drining at the fountain.
Composition and presentation are very pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Malgo,
Obviously there for the benefit of the passing dog. A lively and humorous scene from daily life on Las Ramblas(?) captured under an agreeable ambient light.

Ciao Malgo

J'ai comme l'impression que tu es sur la Rambla. Rue piétonne sans égale tellement tout est beau dans le moindre détail. Même les lampadaires ont quelque chose de spécial.

Hello Malgo,

A good decisive moment capturing the orange furred dog quenching its thirst. Excellent sharpness throughout and well framed and composed. The tree at right makes a good partial frame. Tfs!

Hi Malgo
A street scene, which has a lot of charm, with that beautiful lamp-fountain and all the people strolling down the street, the dog who wants to drink water at the fountain is an ideal touch, a beautiful corner that I think is located in Las Ramblas.
A fantastic photo, with beautiful natural colors, very good lighting and excellent sharpness.
Well done. I love.
Enjoy Sunday.
Very best regards.

Ciao Malgo
un niente di speciale che porta con se tutta la vita di questa città, il grande viavai della maggioranza delle persone e la tranquilla "solitudine" di pochi.
Ci hai fornito una finestra sulla vita del luogo.
Bella anche la conversione in b&w.

PS hai ragione, due anni sono passati in fretta.....

Hi dear Malgo, a great world traveler!

Ys so stylish and also energish town image is presented by you. You set pole in the center, even tough there are busy background, and your strategy makes good to the point finaly. One month ago my daughter visited there.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

One way of getting electrocuted while having a drink. Just joking. Nice urban shot of people doing their thing under a sunny sky. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Malgo,
It is indeed a special fountain. Although it would be difficult to see it is one, if we didn't see that dog drinking from it. I didn't know the special meaning of the fountain for Barca fans. But I know well they gather to this area of Ramblas. I remember it well from 1992 when I lived in Barcelona. That year they won both the La Liga and the European Cup.

Hello Malgo
Attractive street-tableau of this street in Barcelona. The entourage with the facades, the lamppost and the trees are lovely, but examining all the different poses of the people (and of course also the dog) gives the image its value.
Excellent work
Have a good week
Groet Rob

Hi Malgorzata
The essence of normal street life and urban rat race with the fountain rests the focus and the rest just flows so harmoniously.
Well done.

PS: The woman you pointed, was the household owner and happened to be at the right spot - and there's nothing special or peculiar about her,
Hope that explains
Best wishes
