Barcelona in Monochrome

Barcelona is a colorful and vibrant city. The buildings are colorful and so are the people. Eating at a tapas restaurant is colorful as is the color of Mediterranean sea. Everywhere you go you see color yet the city is also perfect for monochrome photography. Here are a few from our trip last year.

The Sagrada Família

La Sagradia Famila is regarded as Gaudi’s Masterpiece. Yet he did not start the project and it still remains unfinished, In 19 March 1882, construction of the Sagrada Família began under architect Francisco de Paula del Villar. In 1883, when Villar resigned,Gaudí took over as chief architect, transforming the project with his architectural style. The church combines Gothic and Art Nouveau styles.

The Catholic Church does not support or fund this Cathedral and many consider it to be almost obscene. Unfortunately we did not get reservations and could not gain access to the structure. Still the exterior itself is magnificent and these photos give some idea of the detail that is persistent within the structure. It is massive and impossible to photograph in its entirety. The Church will have three grand façades: the Nativity façade to the East, the Passion façade to the West, and the Glory façade to the South which is still under construction.

The Windows of La Pedrera

Casa Milà is one of Gaudi’s last works. The courtyard of this residence is in itself a work of art. If you look closely you can see the roof sculptures in one of the windows. The green and blue colors are for the sea which was the inspiration for this construction.

La Pedrera Part One

Barcelona is a vibrant and culturally diverse city. Nobody expresses the soul of the city better than Antoni Gaudí. He was a Spanish architect known as the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí’s works have a highly individualized, one-of-a-kind style. Casa Milà was one of his last works and is commonly know as La Pedrera which means the stone quarry. Its rough hewn appearance is seen throughout the building.

The picture below of the model shows the scope of the building which was designed as a private residence but has a total of eight floors and many separate apartments.
