From the Archives: Spanish Coast
I have all of these pictures from 2009 that I don't think I ever properly gone through. Gigs and gigs of photos from a trip to Spain with my photography class just after my sophomore year at Fitchburg State. It was a 3 week trip that essentially transplanted our photography class from Masschusetts to Barcelona. The same classmates, the same professor, the same cameras, and some of even the same assignments, just taking place with a Spanish backdrop and even in a Spanish school room for those days we needed a projector. Our well traveled professor, the dignified and very tall Peter Laytin, made sure we experienced as much of this trip to the Spanish coastline as we could. He was rather surprised when we finished our photography assignments instead of hitting the Spanish club scene. Yes, we did experience the Barcelona night life on a couple of occasions before the trip was over, and I can say it was very memorable and I highly recommend Barcelona for anyone planning their next vacation!
I started to plug away and go through all of those files in my hard drive that had been neglected by years of schoolwork, summer jobs, and now local photography. And I managed to pull out these two great shots that I have since edited and added to my Photography Catalog. The first is from a day trip to Cadaqués, one of the last little towns on the Spanish coast before you get to France. Two and a halfish hours east of Barcelona, notable artists like Dali, Picasso and Duchamp called this gem of a town "home" at some point in their lives. Full of white buildings and quiet streets, I loved every minute here!
How I got these shots: Nikon D80, 24-135mm
