CINCO INSTANTANEAS. Paseando por Gran Vía y la calle Fuencarral. (Madrid).
This seems to be a part of Madrid that you shoot within, frequently. For those of us unfamiliar with the city, could you possibly share what the area is known for? It appears largely retail and commercial yet there may be something unique about it that draws you there. 🙂

You are right, I shoot many times in the zone because I live at few minutes walking from there.
Anyway the Gran Vía and its zone (Fuencarral street, Hortaleza street, etc..) is the center of town and is full of shops, cinemas, hotels, theatres with musicals and tourists.
The buildings are very nice, remembering the arquitecture of XIX. Near Gran Vía you can go in few minutes to others emblematic sites of Madrid like Alcala street, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, etc …
I can say that is one of the more touristy areas of Madrid. If you come one day to visit the town dont let see it.
Are more places to visit and sure some more important, for example Prado Museum, but you must see the Gran Via,
I hope one day you will visit the Town, that day I will be very honoured to write for you a little guide.
As always, thanks for your comment and excuse me for my bad english, feel free to correct me every time I need it.

Muy guapas,,, creo que tendrás que hacer una guia o un mapa de Madrid, y así no se pierden por donde haces fotos (consejo cariñossos)xDD

Preciosas…La marca española es genial…Se puede apreciar el brillo de la piel!!!! Pero me encantan todas…Madrid, Madrid, Madrid….

A mi me gusta Madrid aunque puede llegar a ser un pelín estresante, a veces quiero salir de aquí pero al poco tiempo deso volver.
Supongo que es una relación amor/odio

Cada día te veo con un ByN más ‘personal’ y me gusta. Todas son buenas, pero la primera es genial !!

Muchas gracias Carlos, parece que voy “haciéndome” con el Photoshop ese de las narices. Esa fue la idea de crear este blog, obligarme a procesar todos los días.
Animan bastante comentarios como los tuyos.
De nuevo gracias

I recently told someone that I think it’s impossible to make an unimpactful shot of life in Barcelona. I can its the same for Madrid. Such beautiful character.
November 10, 2013 at 19:45
Im from Madrid but I was working in Barcelona in the past and I love both towns but are different, I prefer the people of Madrid and too the town is more interesting.

I had to come back to see this post. I wonder how many people are actually able to realize just how fine these shots really are.
December 15, 2013 at 19:21
No matter mate, it isn’t important, in fact the unique thing important is the happiness when I shoot my camera
December 15, 2013 at 21:39
