This is the view from my window, a sunny September 7 Sunday, though the weather forecast announced rain. The picture is taken with a 20 mm wide-angle that with the 1,5 conversion factor of my digital Nikon would be like a 30 mm. I commented in another post that I see two of the Barcelona symbols from home, the Tibidabo and, in this case, Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia (in the red square).

This other photo, taken some years before from the same place, is the Sagrada Familia view photographed with a Nikon FM2 on a tripod, Fujichrome 100 ASA film, and a 300 mm tele lens plus a duplicator factor 2 that a borrow from my friend, EL PERIODICO photographer Pepe Encinas. Tele lenses are used to get a closer view (especially in Sports and Nature Photography), but they also have a very interesting side effect: they flatten the images getting all the planes together. In this picture we see that the temple is very close to the mountain behind, that however is outside Barcelona.
