La Sagrada Familia by smilyjay


Available to buy on…

La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, architecture by Antoni Gaudi. This church is an endless construction site with cranes and falsework, so it is not so beautiful on pictures. So took some time to remove the three cranes about the church to make it look a bit better… ;-)

The church is under construction since 1882 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026.

I was born in 1982 and live in Berlin.
I am working in a permanent employee relationship and in the context of a small business as a photographer.

I´m taking photos since 2006, and experimenting since 2008 with emotion-enhancing image processing. The streets of Berlin are my favorite scenes. I see the everyday and give it a stage. With color effects and textures I increase the depth of a simple image.

    Great capture Jay, I had to smile though, I had the same dilema with the cranes, in the end I was a bit lazy and left them in (as you can see here) :)

    I doubt if I can go to see it in 2026 ;)
    Was there ten years ago, but I think the construction work has well progressed since, so that I consider revisiting soon! The beauty is in the detail, you can ignore the cranes.
    But you did a good job to show us the exterior as a whole.

  • Thank you! ;)
