Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #59 – Angles

The Passion façade

Sagrada Família Basilica in Barcelona, Spain is a wonder of Modernisme architecture.  Although I think of Gaudí’s style as being very rounded and natural, he also uses angles incredibly well.  In the Passion façade, he uses stark angles to show the harsh bleakness of Christ’s passion and death.

In the interior, he uses organic angles on the tree-like pillars to give a sense of opening above.  And outside, he includes many peaks that point heavenward.

You can find more angles at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Great subject for the week Mei-Mei. We were there some 20 years ago and it’s wonderful to see Gaudi’s dream come to fruition

    It is true he uses many angles – and soft ones mostly. Gaudí was a genius, and I am so glad you used him as an example! Great shots, I can see much has changed in 7 years.

      It’s been seven years since I took these photos, so I’m sure it’s changed already! I’d love to go back again too, maybe when it’s done 🙂
