La Mercé 2010 ~ Plaça Sant Jaume

On September 20, 2010, five years ago today, I witnessed a marvelous light performance that was held during La Mercé; a festival celebrating light and fire held every year in Barcelona around this time. The celebration is a week-long affair with many marvelous events and every possible type of performance imaginable. I shot the video below during one of these events held at the Plaça Sant Jaume where the Palace of the Generalitat of Catalonia and the City Hall are located. I almost ran into Pope Benedict there a couple of months later when he consecrated Antoni Gaudí's La Sagrada Familia on November 7 (see link below).  

Back to the event, I had never seen this type of projection before and was totally blown away. Link to more articles about La Mercé below.   

I have seen this type of projection since that day in Plaça Sant Jaume but, as usual, the first time is the one you always remember.

I wonder what they're doing in Barcelona this year?
