It takes some time. And patience…

As soon as I pick my camera from my own lap she says ” NO “.
I then rise it to my eye, and she insists: ” Papa, he dit NO ! ” (Dad, I said NO!).

First shot. Hit!

It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since you last visited the city. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what religion, color or sexual orientation. It doesn’t matter what age you are. It doesn’t matter if you are there for business or pleasure, or because you were born there. It is even indifferent to what mood you are in.

Either you love the place, or you hate it. Period.

If you hate it, just move along. The world is full of great places.

If (by mistake, by coincidence, by luck) you happen to love it, then you are done. You will wish you were a Newyorkian for the rest of your life.

I belong to the latter group. Period.

This is the final conclusion, persistent in my mind, every time I take a walk at the sea front, in Costa Brava on cloudy days.

Relaxing and intense. Very relaxing. Very intense.
