A new feature for 2018, I am posting a photograph of the day and sharing my work with you.

Graphic statue of the scourging of Jesus at the base of the Passion Facade at the Basilica de La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. The Passion Facade was designed to be purposefully cubistic and rough denoting the pain and the obvious nature of the passion of Jesus.

I love La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I love the artistic expression of architecture, and I love the architecture of Antonio Gaudi, perhaps Barcelona's most famous architect and artist.  There are several facades to La Sagrada Familia, and this particular sculpture is from the Passion facade. This is specifically the scourging of Jesus before he is crucified, and I was able to get this photograph.  I set up the photograph so that his name, Jesus, would appear in the photograph as a reminder of who this is.  

Although the facade was imagined by Gaudi, it was Josep Maria Subirachs who brought it to life. His ability to capture the drama of the passion is evident in all the work he has done for this facade.

I took this photograph using a Sony A7RII with a metabones adapter, with an EF-70-200m f/4L II lens set at 87mm. I shot this photograph at f/5.6, 1/640sec at ISO 100.

for Purchase

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can't decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
