The street artists of La Rambla ..


I did not even realise by first glimpse that these statues are alive! Yes , they are live statues. They are human beings, not made of stones.

IMG_2675 I am falling short of words describing them. Skilled make up,  extremely controlled body movements and most of all , the patience, to stand there for all day long , tolerating all kinds of comments and gestures, posing for tourists …. I think all these take a great deal of commitment  towards work. I don’ t know how much they earn, I don’t know if they are featured in any media …but to me , they are great artists. Hats off !

      1. My dad used to live there so I’ve been lucky enough to see the none tourist side. Tiny little cava bar that looks like nothing much hidden down a side street, the market, the amazing architecture. Lots of hidden squares that come alive at night, amazing place!
