In and Around El Born {Barcelona in Black and White}

Despite the fact that I'm living in this beautiful city, with the exception of my recent Instagrammy posts, I hardly ever post photos of Barcelona. Actually just today we were discussing with friends how recently, for the locals living here, the huge tourism industry in Barcelona feels like it's getting out of hand. Some of the most popular areas of Barcelona have now been converted into such tourist attractions that the locals try to avoid going there at all costs. It's probably because of the (usually) great weather, beautiful buildings, great food, beach, mountains and that the city must be heavily publicised I suppose.

Whatever the case, I am living here and perhaps I should post some of the photos of my favourite corners and charming discoveries once in a while. These photos are from in and around the Born district, one of my favourite places in Barcelona.
