My week in Amsterdam finished up yesterday, and I arrived back to my neighborhood, Gràcia, just after midnight. The taxi couldn’t enter by the normal route, due to the crowds, drawn by the annual Festa Major de Gràcia, which is easily Barcelona’s most famous neighborhood festival. Longtime readers may remember my photos from last year’s festival.
I generallt don’t venture out onto the streets by night, choosing instead to take advantage of the mornings, when the droves are nursing their hangovers and I can get a few unobstructed shots. Although the morning light isn’t the best for capturing the color and beauty of the decorations, I was able to get a few interesting angles. The Festa goes on through the 21st, so be sure to check them out!
