  1. Stunning Jane! How I would love to visit someday 🙂

  2. Was “The Three Sweaters” also taken in Barcelona?

  3. These are all so serene! Very nice. I’ve been in NYC for the past 3 days, and serene can be a challenge 🙂 I’m giving it my best eye!

    • Hi David- That’s certainly a different vibe than these quiet streets in Spain but I bet you are getting some great shots. The grittier the better for me when shooting in the city. Thanks so much for your comment and appreciation.

  4. I love the first quote. Now I want some Oreos. Brilliant set of street photography shots. Very cheeky of you to snap that photo of the loved-up couple 💓

  5. Captured beautifully, Jane.

  6. So good Jane! I love to see great street shots and these are all marvellous.

  7. A beautiful gallery Jane. And some great quotes to match. The three sweaters win my vote too 🙂

  8. these fabulous shots are just perfect examples of the charm and warmth that I so remember visiting there. You have truly captured it!! Just loving the 3 sweaters as I always find it amazing how the men over in europe ‘buddy’ around together. 😜

    • Hi April, Happy these brought back some warm memories of your travels there. So true about the groups of men hanging out together…. Thanks so much for appreciating these– I loved shooting them.

  9. Excellent set Jane – you are indeed the master of the stalk/quick draw! 😄

  10. I like those old, narrow, clean, lanes and by-lanes. Thanks for sharing photos.

  11. Great set, Jane. I love the 3 sweaters… Do they still play Jai Alai in Spain? I attended Jai Alai games when I was a kid, in Cebu, Philippines, but I believe they tore down the remaining Jai Alai stadium in Manila. Over 350 years of colonization…and that was the one thing that didn’t stick in the Philippines.

    • Hi Lola Jane- I think the Basque people are still very into it. I’ve never seen it played but this guy was practicing away. I’m happy you liked these street shots – the 3 sweaters was a fun capture. Thanks very much.

  12. Good set, and Jai Alai is an incredible sport. Super dangerous. It’s interesting seeing a court in this sort of way for the first time.

  13. Harmonic and perfect colour in “The Three Sweaters”.

  14. Buena colección Jane, saludos

  15. You have caught the light perfectly with those 3 sweaters, a minute later and it would just be an ordinary photo but that highlight is outstanding. Lots of memorable moments here Jane.

  16. they are all fantastic, but I just love the three sweaters 🙂

  17. Great photos Jane. They make me want to go back to Spain. I also loved the quotes.

  18. Great photos as always. Love traveling with you. Thanks!

  19. I thought I had a favorite but love them all

  20. Nice Oreo pix. I especially liked the guitarist, lost in his world.

  21. Love that Oreo quote. Do your subjects like the man in the tunnel ever think you are stalking them!!!

Love to hear what you think...
