Barcelona – Sagrada Familia

leave a comment »

Sagrada Familia

On the same day, after visited Park Güell, we headed to Sagrada Familia. Sagrada Familia is a massive, privately-funded Roman Catholic church that has been under construction in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain since 1882 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudí’s death. Considered the master-work of renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926), the project’s vast scale and idiosyncratic design have made it one of Barcelona’s and Spain’s top tourist attractions for many years.

The unique about Sagrada Familia is that the construction on Sagrada Família is not supported by any government or official church sources. Private patrons funded the initial stages. Money from tickets purchased by tourists is now used to pay for the work, and private donations are accepted through the Friends of the Temple.

Recently, the Ministry of Public Works of Spain has projected the construction of a tunnel for the high speed train just under where the principal façade of the temple has to be built, that’s why there are lots of SOS banners around the Towers of Sagrada Familia. Although the ministry claims that the project poses no risk to the church, the engineers and architects of the temple disagree as there is no guarantee that the tunnel will not affect the stability of the building.

February Wallpaper

with 8 comments

All right, as promised starting from this month i’ll upload a wallpaper per month,for all visitors here for free!!which is from the best shot of the previous month. My main purpose is actually to keep my momentum up and polish my skill which i think this is one of the fast way and of course to let my visitors enjoy a new wallpaper each month with a CALENDER in it.

Back to the main point, this month i’ll share my landscape wallpaper,which been captured during my winter trip to Sevilla Spain last December 2009. The name of the bridge is Puenta de Triana de Sevilla which is one of the main bridge in Sevilla ( there are a lot of bridge here, you’ll be amaze if you come visiting here ). Shot was taken during sunset and the real shot actually exactly like this one, just a minor treatment was done to keep the the picture clean. The history behind of this bridge i can’t really find it in the internet.

Here is some info about the Triana Town which being connected to the Sevilla City by Puenta de Triana Bridge (I think so):

Triana is a neighborhood in the city of Seville, Spain, across the river Guadalquivir from the center, and in fact the majority, of the city. Triana shares what is effectively an island (sitting between two arms of the Guadalquivir except for a narrow strip to the north where it is canalized under the ground) with Los Remedios to the south and La Cartuja to the north. The island is also named Isla de la Cartuja, and has been home to human settlement since before the Romans colonized Hispalis (Seville).

Traditionally, residents of Triana consider the neighborhood to be an entity separate from the rest of Seville, as a result of its popular sense of identity. In reality, Triana forms an integral part of Seville, its culture, and its tradition.

Bucket List

with 2 comments

I’m sure that all of you might ask what is this “Bucket List” means actually?? It’s actually my personal list of all the photos I hope that one day, i will get the chance to capture them,even i don’t know if i get the opportunity to do so,they are just my target and my ambitious. Maybe some of the list are little bit like a crazy stuff but what the hell…it’s my dream to shot the moment. So……………………………………..here we GO!!

1. Foggy trees by the mountain: Winter season is the best season to shot foggy landscape due to the high intensity of water in the air or something like that…but erm….you know what….i had been  trying to shot foggy trees around my area here since last year…but i never come with a “WOW” result!!!After reading a lot of photography books….now i know the reason why….because to shot a foggy landscape…better you have a zoom lens so that the fog will be seen clearly if you shot quite far from the location.I have tried with my Nikkor 50mm but….still….never get the “WOW” result.

2. Pictures of War: to be specific….i REALLY…REALLY want to capture the moment people get shot by a gun or machine gun during war or something like that…..even i don’t love war. PEACE!!NO WAR!!!

3. 7 Wonders of the World: Yeah!!!absolutely!!It’s my dream since i bought my camera. I love travel and until now…for this list…i just had been to Pyramid. Other than that…nope!!maybe someday…..planning to go to China for The Great Wall of China as the next Trip of 7 Wonders of the World.In case you want to know what is the new 7 Wonders:

  • Giza Pyramid ( Cairo, Egypt )
  • Taj Mahal ( Arga, India )
  • The Great Wall of China ( China )
  • Chichen Itza ( Mexico)
  • Christ the Redeemer ( Brazil )
  • Colosseum ( Rome )
  • Machu Picchu ( Peru )
  • Petra ( Jordon )

4. North Pole : People love to travel around Europe as their dreams,but not for me. My dreams destination is…North Pole. I love to watch documentary like the National Geographic and the past 2 year if i’m not mistaken, i had seen a documentary about a Journey to the North Pole…wow..since then..i set my dream destination as North Pole.But this is not the main point that i want to share with you. Maybe some people may said “What do we got there??it’s cold…no people…what can we shot??”may i show you some thing that i had been dreaming for. HERE
see that…it’s the big Moon!!!yeah..somewhere in the North Pole..there is a closest point and somehow you can see a big full Moon there!!that’s what i aiming for actually.A shot of Full Moon in North Pole.

5. Earth: Yes..Earth! I want to shot the Earth myself from the outer space!!I know we can easily google and search for the picture of Earth and taaaaa…daaaaa…you can get the picture easily. But i’m a greedy person..i want to have my personal shot of Earth!!It’s gonna be amazing..wow!!

6. Makkah or Mecca : I’m a muslim and as most of all of you know…Makkah is the holiest meeting site of the Islamic religion.Since child i have been dreaming to do my Hajj (pilgrim) at The Great Mosque of Makkah myself. As a photographer..i want to shot the The Masjilil Haram myself.

7. Run & Shot : This is a cool idea.It’s actually shots in slow shutter and i run like a crazy people in the middle of a street with a lot of people around and shots like crazy while running.( i hope you get the point here) I think i’ll get some creative shots after i perform this stuff .

8. Jump & Shot : The same principal as point number 7…instead of running…why don’t we shot during the jump of Bungee Jumping!!Jump with a camera and shot and shout like crazy.

That’s all for my Bucket List..till then..chow…
