La Viuda Negra >> Plaça de Sant Felip Neri



Las viudas negras matan y se comen al macho después del apareamiento. Imagínatelo, sin sentimientos ni dolor, tan sencillo. Pero en mi caso nada más lejos de la realidad, me siento como una viuda en duelo, pasando por un momento horrible, asustada por el futuro, aferrándome a las mejores memorias de mi pasado. Estoy superando una ruptura y es doloroso. Mi vida completa ha cambiado en un año, nueva ciudad, nuevo trabajo y ahora se acaba el amor. Estas fotos se hicieron mientras estaba pasando por la debacle, tomadas por la misma persona que la estaba causando. Que conveniente.
El lugar donde se han tomado es precioso, siempre he querido hacer fotos aquí. Esta plaza es una joya escondida en el barrio Gótico de Barcelona, las marcas en las paredes han quedado como testimonio de un bombardeo aéreo en  1938. Voy vestida entera de negro, quizás es como me siento ahora por dentro. 

Black widows kill and eat their partners after mating. Imagine that, so simple, no feelings, no heartache.
But this is not my case, I feel like a mourning widow, going through an ordeal, scared about my future, holding on to the best memories of my past. I am going through a breakup and it hurts very much. My whole life has changed this year, new city, new job and now, it's the end of love. These pictures were taken while I was going through the whole debacle, taken by the same person who was causing the pain, how very appropriate.
The setting is very beautiful, I have always wanted to take pictures here. This square is a hidden gem in barcelona's Gòtic district, the marks on the walls are a testimony of an air raid which happened in 1938. I am wearing a dark outfit, which is sort of how I am feeling on the inside.


Me cuesta pensar en el blog ahora, casi todas las fotos aquí las tomó él y él fue el que me dio ánimos para empezarlo en el principio. Necesito una nueva perspectiva, tiempo para pensar mientras supero esto. Espero volver pronto, perdonar este post tan triste, espero poder compartir pronto historias más felices.

It is hard for me to keep posting, almost every photo here was taken by him, he was the one who encouraged me to start the blog in the first place. I need a new perspective, time to think and get over the pain. Hopefully I'll be back soon,sorry for the sad post, I hope I will soon be posting happier stories.
