Hello followers of Barcelona Photography Tours. One of the most frequently asked questions this month of October has been: It is safe to travel to Barcelona now? I always answer “YES”
Demonstrations had been in specific areas, dates and hours and as long as you keep a distance there won’t be any problem.
In the other hand the moment has been perfect to capture a historical moment in the city, region and country:
a massive demonstration for independence and against the sentence of the Spanish Supreme Court that sent nine catalan politial leaders to jail.
Same old buldings, corners and alleyways that we can capture with our travel photography during all year round were decorated with flags and posters and we could capture protesters wearing flags in the street.
We could also get close to some moments of tension between police and demonstrators trying to capture all from a photojournalistic style, but don’t recommend this if you want to stay away from where the action is.
But there were a lot of beautiful scenes that could be photographed without going to those areas.
