Circo Di Barcelona

The atmosphere in a circus should be dark, b&w, and mystical.

Recently I visited Circo Barcelona in Athens. By coincidence an old friend of mine was managing the circus, so I got some great seats and an invite to visit them in the future and take some photos of these great performers! Can't wait!

That night I captured some shots which were limited by the low light and my poor, point & click camera's, iso performance.

In my mind, probably influenced by Bruce Davidson's "Circus" book, the atmosphere in a circus should be dark, b&w, and mystical. I've tried to accomplish this with my post processing.

I highly recommend my Greek friends and foreign visitors, to pay a visit to the circus. It's not big, shinny or glamorous like Cirque Du Soleil, but it reminded me of how circuses were, a long long time ago and for the low ticket price, you can't really go wrong.
