Sagrada Familia: Portal of Nativity

The Nativity Portal


After examining the opposite façade in detail in previous posts, I select this picture of the Nativity Portal taken from behind the gates late in the afternoon, once the place was not flooded with tourists.

PS: Next Tuesday I start my summer holidays (full August). I will post when I am back from Paris and Disney Land Paris around August 8th. I want you all to understand that this is just a break along the way and not a farewell. When I am back I will be travelling around Spain so I will be able to use my archives at least twice a week. The intention is not to give up and return with more energy in September. This is a fascinating hobby, as fascinating as time consuming but what the heck, as long as there is somehing to shoot at!.

  6. Esta es simplesmente...phew, mas allá de palavras mias. It is a superb breathtaking detail shot, as breathtaking as the whole of Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece. Maybe even more.
    On your travels, will you manage the wider (that is, western side)area of the Penisula Ibérica?
    If you get to Lisbon, let us know! Will miss your great photos of Barça, as well as your welcome comments!
