Life in Barcelona

I’ve been following @nicnorgacia for nearly two years and every time I see a photo of his on Instagram I think, I must share his amazing photos with the Travelettes readers.

So finally that’s what I’m doing.

Hey, you can’t say I’m not diligent at keeping my promises. I’m just not very prompt at doing so.

Here are five reasons why I love Mr Nicanor García’s photos.

1.  Lines, lines, lines! They always match up. I have no idea how he does it but he is the king of the perfect composition.

2.  The way the same colours (turquoise blues, peachy-oranges and whites) appear regularly in his photos. Just looking at his profile is like looking at a collection that was curated with the next photo in mind.

3.  He shows me a side of Barcelona that I haven’t seen before. One of high rises, crowded hill tops and worn-out balconies that have seen better days, but are no less loved.

4.  He writes his captions in English and Spanish. I actually learn something!

5.  He is one of the Instagram crew “rsa_minimal” so he’s helped introduce me to other photographers specialing ins minimalist photography and yes, more lines, lines, lines!

Now enough from me. Here are his incredible photos of Barcelona. Which one is your favourite?
