MONTCADA BIFURCACIO . . . SPAIN

WHEN U LIVE IN BARCELONA U ARE SO SPOILT WITH SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CITY AT YOUR FRONT DOOR STEP. AS MOST PEOPLE KNOW THE CITY IS FULL OF ANCIENT CHURCHES, STATUES & SCULPTURES, ENCHANTED SMALL WINDING STREETS/ALLEY WAYS AND BEAUTIFUL PARKS. IT IS A SKATEBOARDERS DREAM : ENDLESS SPOTS TO SKATE, BARS AND MILLIONS OF RESTAURANTS. IT IS VERY EASY TO GET TRAPPED INSIDE THIS HEAVENLY CITY.

RECENTLY I DECIDED TO START WORKING ON NEW PHOTO PROJECT. I WANT TO CAPTURE IMAGES FROM THE NEIGHBORHOODS 'LITTERING' THE OUTSKIRTS OF BARCELONA WHICH THE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OR TOURISTS AND RESIDENTS DONT GET TO SEE . . . ITS ALSO A GOOD CHANCE TO TRY AND DISCOVER SOME NEW UN-SKATED SPOTS.

IM GOING TO TRY VENTURE TO THE OUTSKIRTS WEEKLY AND BRING BACK SOME MORE IMAGES . . .

THIS WEEK I CAUGHT THE TRAIN TO 'MONTCADA BIFURCACIO' WHICH IS SITUATED ON THE RENFE TRAIN LINE : DIRECTION TERRASSA. IVE ALWAYS PASSED THIS TOWN GOING TO AND FROM CHAYS MUMS HOUSE, AND ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT GOES ON THERE . . . ONCE I GOT OFF THE TRAIN I INSTANTLY NOTICED THE AMOUNT OF LITTER AROUND... I WANDERED THROUGH THE TOWN, GOT BARKED AT BY MANY DOGS AND FOUND MY WAY TO A GARBAGE SITE. AN OLD MAN WAS THERE PICKING WILD ONIONS...HE WAS A NICE OLD MAN AND HE EVEN GAVE ME AN ONION...
