Art on the roof?

Chimneys – works of art?

Work of art-2

Let Gaudi loose and you could get chimneys like this. Or at least you could have gotten chimneys like this a century ago if you had the money to commission him to design your building and if you lived in Barcelona. The whole building РCasa Batlló, is a work of art.

The colours are no mistake or result of post processing. I went all analogue during a weekend in Barcelona and had loaded the camera with Revolog film when we went to Casa Batlló. I rather liked the result Рit sort of went well with the subject.

This is under the roof though – captured inside Sagrada Familia with my home made pinhole camera laying flat on the floor for about a minute or so.

 

Getting ready for pinhole day 2014

I’m getting ready for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2014 (27 April that is). I’ve made a camera. I’ve shot and developed a test film. And it works! I had much doubts if the contraption would produce anything at all and was pleasantly surprised that the film actually recorded something! I got the f-stop wrong so the images are underexposed by a stop or so. One more test roll to check exposure.

Pinhole 01

The building to the left was erected as stables in the 19th century. Today it is of course redeveloped as residential dwellings. Pretty exclusive ones to boot. It’s very rare indeed to find single story family houses in central Stockholm.
