Tale Of The Two Cities - Barcelona & Madrid by Edwin Cabrera : Part 1

During my holiday in Spain I decided to shoot some editorials with models from Barcelona and Spain; model Kristian Dimitrov from Barcelona and Jose Cuellar and his brother Pedro Cuellar who are both actor and models in Madrid. ICON for Petit Men from Toronto provided most of the clothing for the shoot.

I love both cities, Barcelona and Madrid. Both of them have different distinctive characters but both have the same Spanish love for fun and beauty.

BARCELONA


Bisbe Street in Barri Gothic. The Gothic quarter, much of which is pedestrianized, lies between Las Ramblas and Via Laietana. the 13th to 15th century buildings, still greatly intact, are amazing examples of the period 's architecture. The area are filled with interesting museums, speciality shops and private homes.

Casa Batlo by Architect Gaudi- The building is located at passeig de Gracia. Gaudi took into consideration a style unification with the neighbouring facades. By elevating the building by one floor, a cyndrical tower emerged bearing four arm cross. All the furniture was designed by him too.

Port Vell Marina located around Barceloneta district - a typical fishing quarter completely impregnated by salty smell of the sea. It's beautiful beach is the city's best-loved playground. It also a great place to do your morning run and do some weight liftings with local hotties.

MADRID

Tío Pepe sign in Puerta del Sol. Puerta del Sol (Door to the Sun) is one of the most important of Madrid's squares. It is considered the heart of the city’s historic centre. It is meet up place for a lot of people. Besides being an important traffic intersection, where numerous streets meet, it is also the "Kilometer Zero" point from which all distances on the national road network are measured. Here is where usually a lot of people stop off to go to the Plaza Mayor and old Madrid; a place to shop in department and smaller stores and also the place where most people celebrate New Year’s Eve. The Puerta del Sol clock chimes to bring the New Year.

Palacio Real de Madrid or The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official residence of the King of Spain. The royal family only uses it for official ceremonies. The palace has the distinction of being the largest royal palace in Western Europe in size , with over a combined are of over 135,000 m2 and more than 2,800 rooms.

The Jardines del Buen Retiro or Parque del Buen Retiro or simply El Retiro, is the main park of city of Madrid. A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is rightfully one of Madrid's premier attractions. The Retiro Park was created as a royal park; it belonged to the Real Sitio del Buen Retiro palace. In 1632, the palace was built by King Philips IV as a retreat for the Royal family. Retiro stands for retreat, hence the name of the park and palace. It was opened to the general public in the 1800's. The central focus of the park is the large lake where you can go boating or simply laze around on its steps and listen to street entertainers perform.
