As of late… snapshots from July

2 feet and a leaf - The cat, you and us

Although I had lots of plans to create a pretty bunch of photo sessions for this July, I finally can report that last month was not as successful as expected. I liked the idea of taking advantage of the good weather (and the cute clothes that come with the season) to make more outfit sessions and to have more city adventures so we would be able to show you more hidden gems of our city. However, the reality has striked once again, and brought us lots of office work (not fun), little photography time and quite an exhausted feeling.

But there is always a silver lining to plans not going as you thought they would be, isn’t it? We’ve had more unplanned activities, which is also always nice, and took snapshots with our phones like crazy (achieved a record for us!) because I guess we were missing our ole’ big camera.

And another bright side is that we can now share with you quite a few of those random snapshots. I like the chaotic feeling of having all the July adventures together one next to the other. Hope you enjoy our July in review!

Plaça de la catedral - The cat, you and us

The wood structure is a newer addition to the cathedral square in the gothic neighborhood. Dani’s cousin has been working on this architectural project, and we are proud!

Plaça de la catedral - The cat, you and us Glittery shoes and Juno - The cat, you and us

My glittery jelly shoes have been my most worn piece, even though I think my work colleagues do not get why I wear them to work and do not limit myself wearing them to the beach ;) I even got a “these are tacky” comment…oh well, we can’t agree with everyone, it would be too boring. And can’t forget about Juno cute sleeping face and the felt ball used as a mattress.

Barceloneta - The cat, you and us

Our July included lots of la Barceloneta visits, I think we have been more times there during this last month than the rest of months of the year all together.

Beach feet - The cat, you and us

Jelly shoes in the beach and my tropical outfit.

Seaside terrace - The cat, you and us

Do you remember our paella? This was the nice terrace of the restaurant, right on the beach, I think it is difficult to get closer to the sea ;)

Mom and the sea - The cat, you and us

The birthday girl with a happy belly, maybe it does not show but I can assure that’s her “happy belly” face.

A rock shaped as an evil fish - The cat, you and us

Dani next to en evil fish shaped rock. Do you know if the fish is after something recognizable?

Juno the cat - The cat, you and us Universitat - The cat, you and us

The University in the city center looks beautiful and it has a very nice and relaxing garden. If you come during summer to the city and want to disconect for a few minutes I would highly recommend visiting the University.

Dani and flowers - The cat, you and us Universitat garden - The cat, you and us Caravan made - The cat, you and us

…and the University garden has a caravan bar, can’t get better.

Bar bodega Sergio - The cat, you and us Happy campers - The cat, you and us Camper box, 2 feet and a pretty white cat - The cat, you and us

I bought a new pair of Camper shoes thanks to a 50% my friend Lucila sent me (thanks girl!). Scissors here, Juno here; it is an universally acknowledged truth :)

New camper shoes and a light - The cat, you and us

… the shoes! Comfy and cute! You will be seeing a lot of them in future posts, for sure.

Dani with a scotter - The cat, you and us

To end our phone pictures “dump” (ha!) Dani looking the cutest with his scotter and hat. I like him with hats.

We are planning on creating a series for this, so we force ourselves on being less picky with our phone pictures and just show what’s going on with us. What do you feel about it? Do you like when bloggers do this lately or phone pic posts? I really enjoy them!

    beautiful photography! I’m a newbie and am loving learning, although my post processing is still a long way from where I want it to be.

      I think we are all in that process of keeping on learning :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Sounds like a pretty perfect July to me – sometimes you’ve just got to go with the flow and make the most of the free time you have. I love doing random spontaneous things in my free time :)
    Loving your new shoes – and the shots of that wooden sculpture are amazing!

      You’re perfectly right :) I think I was a little disappointed that I somehow felt that we haven’t taken advantage of such a beautiful month, but looking back at our pictures going with the flow was not that bad at all!

    i like dani’s hat too. and your jelly shoes are definitely not tacky! :) but i know what you mean. not everyone around me understand some choices i make for the home and my clothes :) oh well. and the wooden architectural piece is amazing. and that’s so great to have a family member working on it! :)

      Thanks Jane! Oh yes, home choices I know that feeling, hahahaha :) The piece is sadly temporary (it is part of an exhibition of ephemeral architecture around the city) but I think it is awesome that he got a chance to collaborate in this project, and I am maybe biased, but I think it looks awesome.

    Awwiess I’m sorry to hear how office work took
    your time and energy! But don’t worry, I think you
    guys already doing a good job in showing your
    city and its gems c:
    I really like the jelly shoes/sandals and definitely
    not tacky! I saw these yellow one and I’m really
    debatting myself if I should buy it or not…

      Thanks girl! I will slowly gain back my energy (I believe that as soon as I have my first day free from work all energy will be back! hahaha) Oooh yellow jelly shoes! Are they matte or clear? Please share them if you finally buy them; I would love to see how they look like!

      Glad that you like them Petra!!!I think you should come back here, I’m sure Spain is also missing you ;)

  6. Fiona ADDS...

    Yay I definitely love this style of post! The universe keeps nudging me to get a phone that can take photos so I too can join in one the fun too :) So much to like in this post too – scooter!!! yes! I love how the wooden architecture is like a halo above your head Damaris and so cool Dani’s cousin worked on it :) I’m still laughing about Juno on her “mattress” and I love love seeing random shots from where you live. I would take that tacky comment on your shoes and think of it as a compliment. I recently picked up a pair of jelly sandals at the op shop and I wore them heaps on our recent trip and they definitely made me feel like I was having more fun then normal! Tacky fun shoes are the best :)

      Yay!! Thanks Fee! :) I agree with the universe, I’m constantly asking him to give you signals about your phone photos, hahahahaha, just kidding ;) (kinda…) What color are the jelly sandals? I know what you explain, I feel like a little kiddo on summer adventures and it feels great! :)

  7. Deniz ADDS...

    -Hello there! Totally agree with you about this time issue, I hardly find a spare time to share blog posts…
    -Btw, I like all these pics you’ve shared. My july was passing in the blink of an eye, time is sooo fast this summer.
    -Damaris your jellys are so cute, I’ve wanted to buy them for soooooo long but still couldn’t reach, in Turkey they don’t sell (don’t know why) and I’m not the “internet person” for buying shoes without trying… :) Secondly, this caravan!!! is way too hansome <333
    – Lastly, I want to ask if you tried different photo filter, cause these images look different then the others you take. What is the name of the filter, if I'm not making up :))

    Hugs guys.

      Thanks Deniz!!! I had the same issue with the jelly shoes for two years, hahaha, I was not convinced to buy them online but finally found them on the Topshop physical store here in Barcelona. Oh! yes, I downloaded two newer (&free) vsco filters called HB1 & HB2 and I believe these are the ones we used for this pictures; I always adjust the contrast, exposure, shadows and so on nevertheless. You have a good eye! :) Big hug!!!!!! (Oh, we totally would go together to that caravan bar if you come during summer :P)
