Back in spring, here in Barcelona, the trees seemed to engage in a massive explosion of lush, effervescent green foliage.
I remember walking down Rambla del Poblenou all enchanted, looking up like I was beholding the most beautiful sight in existence. I must admit I love nature and plants. And take my word for it: the trees were just beyond spectacular.
So I took my handy smartphone and shot a panorama looking straight up from one of the Ramblas intersections.
The resulting image stayed forgotten for all summer and out of nowhere I found it again now, in October, when those once lush leaves are now deliciously cracking beneath my feet as I walk the autumn dressed streets. With the help of a bit photo manipulation, fantasy music and a certain spicy chili + red pepper + cherry tea… this image was born:
The lovely (and yes, sometimes frustrating) yearly cycle never ceases to impress me.
I’m a hybrid, I’ve always said it. I strive and struggle on the contrasts and opposites. And this is one interpretation of the world as seen… no, as felt, by me. Hope you like it.
