  1. Very cool stuff!

  2. This is a wee bit uncanny. I was just looking at some photography and thought ‘you know whose blog I should visit?’ It was one of these talk to yourself thoughts. The answer I gave myself was Conor’s. I went to my blog and who had just liked one of my postings but your dear self – syncronicity or what. Love these Barcelona shots. Looks like a great trip as always.

  3. Conor, Envious here. Haven’t been to Barcelona in decades. Thanks for letting me revisit it, through your lens and great photos. Hope you had a fantastic time.

  4. Marvelous! Barcelona’s long been ‘on my list’, and you’re reinforcing that urge to tick it off sooner rather than later. Thanks!

  5. I fell in love with all of these photos! I hope to visit Barcelona one day.

  6. Made me smile, right down to my belly..thankyou…X

  7. Looks like it was a fun music festival. Cute dog photo chewing.

  8. There are some super snippets of Barcelona here. Wish I was there. :)

  9. Really great (as usual)!

  10. Stunning, loved the Stairs shot. Thank you!

  11. What a great and varied bunch of images!

  12. You have some great street shots here!

  13. Nice shots! Barcelona looks like a lot of fun, still haven’t been there… By the by, long time no see, you must be quite busy!

    • Hi Nicola, thanks for stopping by! Ya, Barcelona is a lot of fun, I hope it’s on your list :) Been very busy and just back in Ireland after 10 days away, so hence the slow reply – sorry.

  14. Wow! Lovely collection :)

  15. Loved them, specially the one called Stairs

  16. Great shots Conor. I love the street lights and the drumming and music, ok all of them are wonderful. I loved reading about you and your likes and dislikes. I agree about people using their manners, I tell my sons constantly, that people admire others with good manners,
    Keep taking the photos. As a fellow learner of photography, who learns best on the fly, I am enjoying the challenges and the rewards of capturing a great picture, when I do.
    Barcelona looks amazing.

    • Hi Nikki, thanks very much for stopping by and checking out my photos. I’m still learning on the fly too, will get a few more photos up (and hopefully taken!) over the weekend.
      Really glad to hear you are enjoying capturing and creating images. For me, that’s the bit I love, not the finished product. it is so calming and exciting all at once. With that camera around my neck I feel really in tune with everything around me and completely isolated at the same time. Right, that’s enough paradoxes and waffling for one comment! Keep up the good work!

      • Thanks Conor, I can appreciate your sentiment. I love taking the photos, finding the photos and getting the shot I want on my camera. Sometimes the other stuff, downloading, organizing, etc. can be a tad exhausting. The upside is I get to relive the moments when I was taking the shot,again. Mostly it involves critique, but I still love the whole process.
        Glad to meet a fellow photo seeker. Can’t wait to see what you’ve shot recently.
        All the best, Nikki

  17. These are amazing shots!
