Re: Requisite Trip to Familia Sagrada - Photo Story

I understood before going to Barcelona that Familia Sagrada was required viewing, so we got advance tickets to avoid the long hot lines and hailed an early taxi to be in the first groups to enter. Still, it was a daunting experience - a massive, convoluted and not yet complete after 100 years structure filled to the brim with tourists. The size of the thing makes it hard enough to photograph, and the crowds complete the challenge.

I tried to think of something I could do that might be different, and all I could come up with was to photograph at slightly off center angles to create visually the sense of imbalance and chaos I felt in this thing. So the visual worrisome-ness is purposeful. Of course I'm not sure any of that works. But anyway.

If i look at these pictures and think of the ones Roel made and showed in this forum i think you really need a fisheye lens or stich different pictures together to capture the inside of the Familia Sagrada properly.  What might have helped is including some people in the pictures to give a sense of the size of the building. I really like the last one of the kid exploring the things to see in the book.
