Human Nature, A Photograph

For the next several weeks I’ll be sharing some of my photos from Spain.  While there I visited Madrid, Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada and finally Barcelona.

I’ll be heading back in late spring to the Catalan region to attend (and be a part of) a wedding and will surely take many more.  Along with the photographs, I’ll try to share a few thoughts about each place.   My girlfriend, who is the one getting married, was born and raised in Barcelona.  She is perhaps one of the proudest people I know with regards to her mother country.  When I first met her in Verona, Italy, she explained in detail that she was not Spanish, but Catalan.  I like that about her – her knowledge of her people and country.  Among many things we have in common, while having been raised in polar opposite countries, is our love of books.  The photo below is of a little shop, filled literally to the ceiling.  Needles to say, it was hard to leave…
