Freestyle at Plaza Real
A trip in Barcelona, a whole afternoon spent shooting, a backpack full of spare clothing items, the sun, a square full of tourists… the equation couldn’t be more simple: “Romano, change yourself here, in front of everybody, then go playing the skater boy among of them. You will look very intelligent, and it’ll make cool pictures to publish.” And I did the job, performed tricks and somersaults in the crowd. A funny face, another trick: “¿quien es este chico?”
La plaça Reial, as the Catalan call it, is one of the most touristic places of the city. it was build in 1848, in dedication to king Ferdinand VII and in a wider sense to the Spanish monarchy. Located two steps from the famous Ramblas, it was yesterday frequented by the higher class looking for sun and gastronomy – times are changing. This is the only square in Barcelona with archways under wich I undertook few acrobatics.
The outfit is ideal for Spring: a denim jacket, a t-shirt with a eye-catching-trucker graphic, black jeans and pair of tropical-patterned sneakers. A way I like to dress, no hassle. However be careful to wear those sneakers with fitted jeans, the contrary would look like “crushed” (well, the Vans Era is a bit flattened). Do not worry, we did not forget to shoot around Gaudí’ street lights (to be continued on Facebook)
