Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #34: Close-Up

My cameras and phones have never been really good enough to get good macro shots, so here are some close-ups of architecture: Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona, Spain; the capital of a Corinthian-style column in Venice; a bench wall by the sea in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

And just for fun, I was playing with my phone today, so here is a close-up of my cat Juhani.

The Torre Glòries (formerly Torre Agbar) in Barcelona, Spain is an office building in the Poblenou neighborhood where we stayed.  It looks even cooler at night thanks to exterior LEDs.

We came into Venice, Italy on a cruise ship, which gave us amazing views down into the city of all the beautiful buildings and canals.

Bellver Castle sits on its hilltop above the city of Palma de Mallorca, Spain.  The circular castle was built in the 14th century and is easily seen from the city’s bay.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #22: Happiness is…

Visiting Gaudi’s unfinished church La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was one of the most moving and spiritual experiences of my life.  I was prepared to appreciate the unique architecture, but I was not prepared for the feeling of wonder, awe, and peace of this space.  Truly, it is a place where you can feel the presence of God.
