Shadows of La Boqueria

Barcelona is hot and humid in July. Late afternoons, when the temperature is becoming a bit more bearable, the light starts dancing with all the shapes and old architecture. La Boqueria food market, full of tourists, becomes a place of paradoxes. We are all eager to see the culture, the history, the people, and much more, however, all of us are playing a small role to strip the place of all of those things. We all rush to a place to absorb all those fantasies in our minds not knowing that we are all participating in destroying what we all came for. In such situations a photographer needs to find the shadows to maybe hide parts of reality that we are facing today.
