This image suggests dynamism. The surfer, dressed with his black neoprene, walks by the seaside with his board. We don’t know if he is going surfing or he already did so. What can be highlighted here is how in Barcelona, even in a rainy day, one can practice nautical sports. The chromatic games of the blue sky, the yellow of the central post and the rain...
Barcelona is an active city, full of dynamism. In this photograph, we can appreciate how the city wakes up and people start their day in a narrow street of the historic city centre.

Thanks to the light that entries through the vertexes, we can discover this smoker and see all the smoke around his face. This is an image that transmits tranquillity and relax. Calm and tobacco. It’s the moment to relax in Barcelona city.
Raventós knows how to capture the immediacy of the city life, perfectly. In this image, the main role is an elegant lady with a hat and a suit with red and white squares and striking sun glasses. She is outside a dark house. The scene has a certain vintage atmosphere and a comic spark too, that provokes a smile to who is watching it.
