Today is the one year anniversary of the terror attack in Barcelona.
I was in Spain when it happened, on a train with my aunt and mother, in the country to celebrate my aunt’s seventieth birthday (which was the day of the attack, so I will always remember the date).
When we got off the train there were men carrying assault rifles everywhere.
During that trip we stayed one street from where it happened.
The photograph is of the makeshift memorial at the top of La Rambla, where the attack began, a few days afterwards.
