Barcelona . Catalonia . Spain . 2014

Travelled to the capital of Catalonia - Barcelona with my good friend and acclaimed wedding photographer Kent Wong and my makeup partner Cherry Au. April has always been the season I travel because this is where Kent and Cherry would take on overseas assignments and a great chance for me to tag along their well-planned itineraries and get my street photography fix.

 Cherry takes over my new Fuji X100S that I brought along for the trip.  Fujifilm X-T1 + XF56mm F1.2

 No trip to Barcelona is complete without watching a game at Camp Nou - home to FC Barcelona and the largest stadium in Europe. It can house over well over 99000 fans! This match was between FC Barcelona and Celta Vigo and to my disappointment, Barcelona lost the match this time round.
