Familia Sagrada / Barcelona

Not too much light, nor too little… because both things blind, and the blind cannot see.

 – Antoni Gaudi.

Those who know me well know that I am absolutely in love with stained glass, with the play of light and colour. So, the during the visit to the Familia Sagrada, I wasn’t so attentive towards the unique architectural style of Antoni Gaudi, but was more captivated by the very vivid, fantastic stained glass works and its ethereal effects.

We were there in the afternoon and the December sun filtering through the stained glass of the western Passion façade and covering the interiors with multi-hued light. (Dec. 2014)

    • I think I know what you’re saying… Caused by light, the effects are so transient … They keep changing as does the light and weather in the day. I feel morning would be the best time… With the cool blue-green light and the natural freshness of the morning. That’ll be something to experience.
