Barcelona Drive By

Barcelona, Spain

I have been fortunate to be able to travel quite a lot over the past few years, and, over that time, I have taken thousands of images. One of the challenges of a photographer is taking the time to go through the images and decide which one is "edit" worthy. My unedited images number in the tens of thousands, most of which will never see (and shouldn't) the light of day.

There is also a tendency to look at your most recent photographs and ignore some fine older ones. For example, this year has been my busiest from a travel standpoint and I have begun to realize that I have been ignoring many of the images that I took over the past several years. 

This realization will result in a purposeful effort on my part to post some older images. This image, for example, was taken on a Hop On - Hop Off bus in Barcelona, Spain. I love taking these types of buses on the first day we visit a new location to get a lay of the land and figure out which ones we will visit over the rest of our stay. I don't remember which part of Barcelona this building was located in, but I really loved it's shape and the evening light on it. It can be a challenge capturing it on a moving bus and my recommendation is to shoot in burst mode. You may get 19 bad images but there is usually one (like this one) that works.
