Thank you Felix,
Since moving to Barcelona I've felt a little lost as I have no contacts
here, but things are starting to get better! I've got an exhibition in
October at La Rosa de Foc which I set up last night. The owner is really
into photography and REALLY looked closely at my portfolio. I also met a
painter called Antonio Ferrer from Huesca at the same time. He's invited me
to work with a few others on a joint painting/photography exhibition. It was
quite nerve wracking having people look so closely at my portfolio, but I
now feel as if I'm making contacts.
Let me know when you are in Barcelona. My partner is from Logroño and we
have been to San Sebastian - a lovely place with great pinchos!

Gracias Felix!

Hi Thomas,

Casanova is in calle Pelayo close indeed to Plaza de Cataluña. Is, perhaps,
the bigger second hand shop in Barcelona and has lots of Leica, Blad, etc. A
visit is a must. I f you go there please tell them you are friend of Felix
Maturana from San Sebastián. I am not a pro but a already retired lawyer and
economist, formerly general purchasing manager of my country's steel plant,
but *all* my family is on the photography business and they are  well known
in Spain. My father, when was  87 years old, was the oldest photograh in
active and my brother, three nephews and my daughter are on the business. Of
course if I go to Barcelona, I used to go for listening opera in the Liceu,
I'll email you, as to others Leica users,  but bear in mind that I am, as a
muti brand user, in the Nikon AF list, in the Nikon MF list, in the Contax
list, in the Contax G list, in the Blad list, in the Bronica list and others
more, we risk to start a brand war...or meet in in the soccer stadium of
Barcelona FC which has more than 100.000 places.

Seriously contact me if you need something and you believe I can help and I
hope to meet you in Spain or in England or elsewhere.

Kind regards
