“The boys of the swimming pool”, Barcelona
Two Tales from Barcelona
Jude and his team returned from Barcelona this week having shot the competitors of the FEI Nations Cup final. To promote the event the stunning location of the ’92 Olympic diving pool was used to provide the backdrop of the host city. The show jumpers, one from each nation, came to the mountain side pool to represent their country before the competition starts this weekend.
Whilst at the location another story played out. The pool which is abandoned during the winter months is closed off from the public but this doesn’t stop the local boys jumping the fence and taking advantage of a day off school. They introduced themselves in English as “The boys of the swimming pool”. Jude took this image as they took a break from diving off the top board.
