Photographer's Note

Conversation, Contemplation and Osculation in La Barceloneta. This tapas bar - La Cova Fumada in Carrer Baluard - is described as a 'hole in the wall', and has little in the way of 'decor', but it was teeming with local people at this relatively early hour in the old barrio not far from Barcelona's closest beach. A little away from the sand, the promenade and the bars and cafes, is this old quarter - built mainly in the 18th century - with its narrow streets and old fishermen's dwellings. In this area the washing still hangs from the upper windows and neighbours chat outside their doorways. I took this one with my compact Canon, rather hastily as I noticed the couple get into position for a little 'osculation'. Only later did I notice in the photo the contemmplative man on the right and the younger one conversing on his phone. I cropped the photo, and thought of cropping quite a lot more, but the red highlights in three corners took my fancy and I decided to keep them, along with the coloured plastic washing bowls in the kitchen window.

I will just add that the tapas in this little place are the best I've ever had; sincere thanks to my friend Rosa who took me there after a long walk along the beaches from Diagonal Mar.
