Cosme Lapena

Welcome to my Blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share a bit about myself.


My Name is Cosme.

I live in Barcelona (Catalonia), beside the Mediterranean sea.

I am passionate about photography. I have always preferred street photography, but do not give up other types of photography and I’ve enjoyed them all.

I like street, nature, portrait, travel photography and everything you can do with a photo camera.

This blog is about photography, feelings, love, friendship, freedom and all these things that allow me still be alive.

The blog is devoted to all the open minded people who want to share their experiences and feelings with me.

Everything started with my father’s camera, a Voigtlander, long time ago …



I’ve been many years with Canon, but now I use the new Sony A7II. It’s an incredible camera, someday I’ll post a review.

  5. Cosme, thank you for the follow – I’m honoured. I don’t have any fancy gear or any education at all in photography. It’s just a hobby. Or rather – it’s my favourite hobby. It will be interesting to follow you.

  10. Interesante trayectoria! Aunque no Canon (Nikonian 🙂 ) de acuerdo con la Sony, y sus magníficos objetivos de Carl Zeiss 🙂 hacen la diferencia. Estaremos explorando nuestros blogs, recién estuve en Barcelona, que es una ciudad que me encanta!!

  18. Your blog is amazing and your photography is absolutely stunning. There’s so much I can learn from your blog 🙂


  19. How interesting! My husband and I visited Catalonia 2 weeks ago. We loved Barcelona, even though we are no soccer (football) fans! — just a joke!


  20. Impressive pictures…what I really love in your pictures is the colors….great job!! how has your transition been …shifting to sony? I never really liked the colors produced by Sony…they’re quite like underexposed in terms of color,saturation and tint!


  21. hello cosme,
    greetings from kuala lumpur!
    thank you very much for taking an interest in my photography and following my blog.
    you are my first fan from barcelona! great 😉
    much appreciated!
    best regards,


  22. Well, thank-you for dropping by my site (http://vancouvervisions.com/), it’s a real pleasure to meet you. I always love meeting another photographer who I might be able to learn some new tricks from, since I myself am basically only a hobbyist, but I’m always willing to learn from those who know more than I, or who are willing to learn right along with me. Like yourself, I find myself quite passionate about photography, so I never look at learning as anything difficult, but rather as the one thing I would gladly practice all day if I had the opportunity to do so. So now that I’m following your site, I’m sure we’ll run into each other on occasion, and until then, I hope your summer is going well, and that you are enjoying yours as much as I’m enjoying mine. Take care now.

  23. I came back to this page to let you know that I just cruised through a lot of you portfolio and gallery but I just couldn’t figure out how to leave any individual comments with the images i was viewing. No problem though, I really enjoyed what I was seeing, you are definitely very talented and don’t need a bunch of comments telling you that. I did, however, want you to know that I enjoyed myself very much. Take care.

  27. Love the Voigtlander. I have my Mum’s old Rolleiflex (she was a photographer). My first camera was a fixed lense Yashica and that is where my journey began 🙂

  30. I think these photos are interesting in their appeal and shows people the beauty of the natural and man made world in which we live. My most liked photograph is the one of Montserrat, breath taking in its design and fully epitomising the oneness that is shared with nature.
