Global warming is burning my car

Posted in photography on August 19, 2006 by Martì

It’s really disturbing how global warming it’s taking a main role in our lives. Five years ago we used to have very hot summers and very cold winters, it wasn’t perfect but at least we knew what to expect from the weather. But now, even the weather forecasters on TV are so confused they don’t even know what to say. Wednesday was warm, a perfect day to spend by the pool, but suddenly all changed in thursday, it wasn’t just a summerstorm, it was windy in a very Siberian style, and it has been like this for a few days now. The opposite happens in winter, suddenly one day you wake up, and you have to put your swimsuit on! Definitey, global warming is making weather believe in Carpe Diem.
This shots are from friday, it was getting better but still we were 20°, which compared to the 38° we are used to in summer, it isn’t that much.

Quite a nice afternoon

We were in a protest against the continuous rise of the prices concerning the rent we pay for living. But i’ll talk about it some other day. It was a nice afternoon, it was warm and the sun was hitting the tarmac of the city centre. Here are three scenes from that afternoon.

oh, yes, they all want a cheaper flat to live in, but that doesen’t distract them from what they’re doing.

No goals, no joy

A friendly match is not for suffering. Football shouldn’t be taken so seriously. Anyway, i went to this match with my compact camera willing to get shots from the crowd celebrating a goal. No one scored.

I do. I always have. Well, this is a first post to start my diaries of the new cosmopolitan philosophies.
