ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Barcelona, Spain: The unfinished "templo expiatorio de la sagrada familia," one of the few structures that has ever taken my breath away at first sight. The organic mass and complexity of it is stunning, and its architectural history continues to evolve since it was begun in 1882. -- Note the people to building relationships in the second photo and last photo and to get a small sense of scale.

So do you shoot these pics in B/W or do you post process them in PS? If it's the latter, how do you go about it?

it's post: i use eliot's black and white conversion as a foundation, then there might be some general tweaking and pushing of contrast depending on the shot or set.

I love the textures present in this set. It must have been difficult to photograph such a large structure! I really like the mass of letters in the third photo... do they say anything?

I've been there in 2004, and the church makes me proud to be a catholic. I just wish i still live to see the finished building, because it will take another 60 years.

Leilani, the letters on the third photo are part of a text written in catalan. although it's difficult to read i think it is a fragment of the New Testament, surely the gospel of st. John...
