This is a tiled mosaic inserted on the roof in a structure at Parc Guell in Barcelona. The tiled mosaic was made by Antoni Gaudi who was also the designer of this Parc. All this info from Wikipedia – here. Its a pretty nice place – though unfortunately, we didn\’t have enough time and energy to explore the entire parc.

Gothic Cathedral – Barcelona

Gothic Cathedral - Barcelona

Gothic Cathedral, Barcelona

In Barcelona, after work was done with, got time to just be a tourist and do a lot of sightseeing. On a Friday evening, walking past the Gothic cathedral, the doors were open, and I got to go in. This cathderal, full name \’Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulalia\’ is the first church in Europe I have visited and I was blown away at how gorgeous the interiors are – the soaring vaults and transepts – amazing – and the decorations and carvings (and bling) inside this gothic cathedral is indeed elaborate. I found out that this cathedral is dedicated to St.Eulalia, a co-patron saint of Barcelona who achieved sainthood by being tortured by the Romans when she was a young virgin of 13!

Processed in lightroom – almost no adjustments except bumping up the contrast a little bit and bringing the saturation down.

Modhera, Gujarat, India.

I was in Modhera, Gujarat, India during December 2011. The really old Sun temple here, built between 1022 – 1063 AD. is an awesome place with exquisite architecture. And since this is a ruined temple, only visitors were around. Since I reached there early (but not early enough for my liking), the caretaker there was still around, sweeping the place. Its like one of the cravings came to life, put on modern clothes and was taking care of the place for the fellow carvings (yeah..time to go get some coffee..).

Modhera, Gujarat, India.

I was in Gujarat, India during December 2011 and went to visit Modhera. Modhera, literally means \”The Mound of the Dead\”. The Sun temple here was built between 1022 – 1063 AD. – there is no active service / puja there anymore since the inner sanctum has been destroyed – by various invasions and earthquakes. I spent a good four hours getting a feel of the place, enjoying the architecture, checking out the pigeons and trying to not smell the bat guano.

While I was there, a huge batch of school kids came by on a school trip. I was trying to photograph the Ramakunda or the sacred tank when they all decided to sit to pose for a photograph. I took a break to enjoy their antics. As soon as the shutter clicked on the group photo, the kids all started scrambling up. That\’s when I had to turn and take this photograph.

Did you see the bird and the mooon in the photograph as well?

I processed the photograph in Lightroom 3. I used a preset called BoonDoggle – a free preset available as a part of 14 free presets from Wonderland presets. On top of that I played around with some settings in teh basic module.

Berries and Shadows – 3

Berries and Shadows - 3

Berries and Shadows, Santa Clara, CA

One afternoon, walking from one building to the next, I was entranced by the trees which had shed most of their leaves and had lots of berries. What leaves were remaining were with the berries. This tree was casting a shadow on the wall and also on the shiny glass wall. Perchance, I happened to have my camera, and shot this scene knowing I was going to turn it into monochome…

Arches

Arches – off Las Ramblas, Barcelona, Spain.

A photograph from walking around Barcelona\’s Las Ramblas with the Oly E-PL3 and the Panny 20mm. This was some old building in the Gothic Barri area, on the right side of Las Ramblas (right walking towards Playa Catalunya). There were chairs and tables setup underneath these arches – outdoor seating for a restaurant.

Processed in Lightroom Beta 4, using Mikey G\’s Kodak Film emulation preset – Kodak Technical Pan and then made some more adjustments.
