Sitting at a cafe, sipping my coffee and trying to look Bohemian! I did the vignette in Google Picasa (free download and easy to use with many different effects to choose from)

IslandMan, would you consider adding the un-vignetted version? It may not be as artistic but it would be interesting to see, to compare and to see details currently obscured.

Hello PortMoresby, I chose the vignette effect to focus on the chanteuse and to mask the other distractions around her. I think it adds a sense of surrealism and mystique that I believe is in keeping with the essence of Montmarte. I don't like "messy" pictures and I thought the original...

I'd dearly love to see her "messy" cart. But, yes IM, your vision takes precedence, certainly.

I love Barcelona. It is one of the few cities that I feel I could live in, if I were to leave NYC. Large enough to have an active cultural and social life that is not dependent on tourists, small enough to be able to get around and do things without a car. Lovely things to look at. Great food.

I'll second Jonathan L on that...one of the two or three cities I'd be willing to live in, besides Brooklyn...and you found my favorite tapas place, too!

Great post! Have yet to visit Barcellona, but will soon. An unrelated question. Is that Madonna as in the entertainer, or Madonna as in the mother of Jesus?

My friend jokes that I am the Queen of reinvention - much like Madonna (the musician type). Forever having a complete change of heart about my life's direction. But I've decided to embrace that now change is good! Keeps things interesting. Wholeheartedly agree Jonathan and Paul. In fact I applied for a few jobs there in the summer! I'm still considering it... Oh, and that tapas place! Just brilliant. Was completely worth the 40 minutes we had to wait for a table!

Thanks for the great post and I'll have to try the Tapas Place next time! I got the same impression in my visits as you - that the locals seem very happy and proud of their city , as they should be.

excellent article and pictures.... I can relate with many of the personal comments you make; decisions you make in life should be for yourself first. I too made a decision to leave home, family and friends and see the world. It was tough at first, but, once you explore and experience, you don't look back. Congratulations!

I remember seeing those two buskers during our time in Verona in August, 2012. They did present a very creative look in a land of creative street entertainers. Verona was a fantastic place for us to kick back and do not too much. Piazza Bra in the evening was like watching the Veronese living room in action. Many nights we would take our gelato to the steps across and to the left of the restaurant section and just watch the world pass by. This was during the Opera season, which brought many...

Good to see some common sense rules that street performers,the public,businesses and police can support. Sounds like they struck the right balance . I hope others cities follow London's lead rather that ban all performers if problems arise.
