Barcelona for the NY Times 8

Earlier this year I went to Barcelona with the New York Times Style Magazine, "T," to shoot photos for a travel story revolving around the fact that Barcelona has historically been a hub of Skateboard, Art, and Graffiti culture. Sadly, the article (and hence my photos) will never run because of staffing changes at the magazine. So I will do a series of posts sharing the photos I took on that trip to Spain this April, 2012.

My Broken Leg

In case you didn't know. I broke my leg on November 3rd, and have been dealing with the recovery ever since.

My skin took a beating. The injury itself, mixed with the surgery and swelling created massive blood blisters. They are getting better, slowly.
