Streets of Barcelona

Jacqui had to go to Barcelona for work  so I took the opportunity and went with her. I explored this beautiful city and it was a great opportunity to test my new Nikon D750. It was not all hard work and long hours for Jacqui, we had also some time together exploring the city and enjoying some tapas and wine.

Unlike my other travels, I limited my equipment to focus completely on the new camera. All pictures were taken with the Nikon D750 with a Tamron 24-70 lens., no filters, no tripod. Camera and lens turned out to be a great combination. Amazing how you can stretch the ISO without noticing any noise. This became very noticeable in the evening and in dark churches.

The weather wasn’t great, actually it was raining most of the time. There was even a weather warning along the coast. Luckily this wasn’t a problem for me and the camera, in fact it was an advantage. No busy streets filled with tourists and the wet streets created a beautiful reflection. So every disadvantage has an advantage, as a great player and manager of Barcelona football club once said.
