South of Spain

Photos taken in Southern Spain. They are from Sevilla, Cordoba and Grenada.

I used a Canon 500 SLR with a 1.8 Canon lens and Hema (Dutch branded) 200 film.

I don’t remember why I left in the sprockets when scanning the photos but it looks okay so there it is.

Taken outside of the Mezquita a.k.a. The Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba. I didn’t shoot film inside only digital. But I should share those photo’s, it was a really impressive place.

Mezquita de Cordoba

In 2012 we visited the South of Spain and one of day trips was to Cordoba to visit the mosque/cathedral of Cordoba. It’s huge and very interesting because of its history of switching between a mosque and cathedral. Currently the building is used as a cathedral and Islamic prayers are not allowed.

My Canon ultra wideangle came in very handy. One the many Unesco World heritage site we’ve visited in the world. I should make a list one day to see which ones we have been to.

I’ve also noticed when editing these photos that it is hard to keep the lines straight. Especially in such a building with many different lines and using a wideangle lens it is very easy to get crooked lines and distorted perspectives. Not real advice, but keep that in mind.

Desolate Barcelona

Barcelona was a bit empty around Christmas, but not as desolate the images may suggest. I find it an interesting theme to shoot urban landscapes with (almost) no people in it.

“Sometimes, when one is moving silently through such an utterly desolate landscape, an overwhelming hallucination can make one feel that oneself, as an individual human being, is slowly being unraveled.“

Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Enter the light

doneI loved the low winter light in Barcelona. The narrow alleys in El Barrio Gotico created different spots with beams of light that lasted only for a while until the sun moved on.

Turistas: Barcelona

“The tourist may complain of other tourists, but he would be lost without them.
Agnes Repplier

The following are photos of tourists in Barcelona. Interesting to see how many people now use their phones and even tablets are their primary camera.

Now you See me

I came across a project where these two guys took photo’s of each other at the same time and same location and wanted to do something similar with my wife. A holiday to Spain was the perfect opportunity for this. The photo’s were taken in Sevilla, Grenada, Malaga, Cordoba and Italica.

The following photo’s also include those taken with film. You can see it is a Canon EOS SLR with some locally available color film (Hema 200).
