About this Blog

After a trip to New York in 2007 I created this blog to share the pictures I took there with family and friends. However, this blog has become a fantastic way to organize and view the pictures of my trips abroad, my weekend short trips in Catalonia and my visits to beautiful places in Barcelona.

After my trips, I have realized that Barcelona is actually a really beautiful city, as I will try to show here from now on. About me, you already know that I'm an organized person. I also would say that I try to live every minute I have because time is our most precious treasure, together with health, love and friendship.

In 2006 my parents gave me my first camera, a compact digital one. With this camera I began to discover photography and gradually it has become one of my favorite hobbies.

In 2010 I bought a SLR to practice new concepts  of photography I was learning: depth of field, aperture, exposure time, light measurement, etc.

I also wanted to have a SLR to perform  photography more creatively, applying effects like defocusing, frozen water or silk effect.

And what a better place to practice photography that the beautiful city of Barcelona, where I was born and grew up, and the fantastic places that Catalonia hides.

So this blog allows me to have available some of my best photos and share them with more people interested in photography as well as being a tribute to my city and a fantastic platform to show the city that I admire so much, the city of Barcelona.

Another of my hobbies besides traveling, discovering beautiful places in Barcelona and Catalonia and photography, is science and reading.

That is why I have been progressively writing for the last years entries about novels and science books I have read, as well as articles of science.

Sometimes science and reading merge together and articles are summaries of popular science books I liked a lot. In the posts about books, whether novels or scientific, I write a summary first and then my personal opinion about the book.
