November 2014 - Sun and Mortar

January 31, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Through my work I have been giving the opportunity to spend some time in Barcelona. Spare time was not as generous as I hoped for, but I still managed to capture some of the finest Architecture created in this World. Antoni Gaudi  (1852-1926) a Spanish Catalan architect worked mainly in Barcelona  and created some of the quirkiest buildings you will ever see. Straight lines are almost nonexistent, but the flow of walls , glass and steel is just breath taking.  Almost water like.

Architectural Photography has very different challenges to Portraiture. Alone the scale requires a different approach. Light is almost impossible to direct other than to wait for the right moment. Distance and viewing angles, all having giving a far more restricted window of opportunity. Also Buildings are readily available and anybody can take an image of a Building. Finding your own view becomes more challenging. Never the less it is a good way of trying something different and varying the approach to a subject.
