Warm tones. A fairly still night, it is the holiday of the Immaculate Conception so a hubbub of voices from a crowd gathered outside the Basilica de la Mercè. There a a few people near me where the fountain is at the south-west end of the square, their speech is more distinct and loud - individual voices can be made out. It is an interesting counterpoint to the muted roar of indistinguishable chatter of which no cadence of timbre can be made out, only that of its entirety - a real 'rhubarb rhubarb effect. The fountain is on, adding the characteristic tinkle and splash to the predominantly human ambiance present in the square.
