Enjoying Modernism with Christine, Christopher and their son

Christine is a friend of a friend that lives in Seattle and this year decided to visit Barcelona while traveling with their son in the south of France.

We got in contact because an american friend living in Barcelona thought it would be nice for them to take pictures and learn a little about Modernist erchitecture during their visit. A complete visit to all relevant modernist buildings in Barcelona would take about one whole week, this including private homes, shops, public buildings and parks. Only Gaudi ´s work would take at least 3 days and our goal was to make it enjoyable in 4 hours.

For photographers and photo amateurs a tour requires a little more time for framing, thinking and shooting, so no place for rushing or running here. Too many wonders in too little time, so we decided to take the left part of the Eixemple district as our territory and explore the most notorious architechts of modernism in this area. So from our previous Modernist circuits we took this part and developed a personal map and a booklet with information on each building, architect and location for each one of them. Our meeting point was at their apartment right in front of Fundación Godia, our first landmark to be visitised.

During the walk we disocovered that Christopher, after working for Microsoft for many years is now a very active photographer with his own website and photography exhibitions in the USA, Christine enjoyed the stories about the Catalan families and their desire for notoriety, in a city that became metropoli keeping a deep smalltown soul. The Harris-Crandall family had a great afternoon to be together, learn, take pictures, shop for local food and discover a little bit of this wonderful city.

A fun group at Gaudi´s Parc Guell

Yes, you say Parc Guell and not Park Guell because it is written in catalan, the local language of the city. We discovered a very big sign at the main entrance that makes it very clear.

We were 17 people + 2 instructors, meeting last Saturday at the park to admire and photograph Gaudi´s work in terms of architecture. The day was splendid, because even tough we are in the middle of the winter Barcelona has ha shinny blue sky that gave us bright light, deep shadows and great colors for our pictures. our group was eager to learn more abut aperture and speed so we started exploring the secrets of contrast and aperture on everyone´s cameras. every camera a new discovery and also a wonderful opportunity.

One great thing: the work of Gaudi offer a lot of texture and opportunities to expand photographic techniques and capture, texture, depth and color in a vibrant way. Gaudi´s philosophy about creating a point where architecture and nature interact in an harmonious way is the legacy we have recently discovered in sustainable architecture.

But also, speed was a photographic interest for this group, freezing and registering movement here was not an easy task, because such a splendid day made visitors lay down or recline o enjoy the magnificent view. We could not stop laughing about freezing relaxed people, so we relaxed ourselves and joined them.
