Plaza de España – Sevilla by neobit

The Plaza de España, designed by Aníbal González, was a principal building built on the Maria Luisa Park’s edge to showcase Spain’s industry and technology exhibits. González combined a mix of 1920s Art Deco and ‘mock Mudejar’, and Neo-Mudéjar styles. The Plaza de España complex is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. In the centre is the Vicente Traver fountain. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain.
Today the Plaza de España mainly consists of Government buildings. The Seville Town Hall, with sensitive adaptive redesign, is located within it. The Plaza’s tiled ‘Alcoves of the Provinces’ are backdrops for visitors portrait photographs, taken in their own home province’s alcove. Towards the end of the park, the grandest mansions from the fair have been adapted as museums. The farthest contains the city’s archaeology collections. The main exhibits are Roman mosaics and artefacts from nearby Italica.

I have had so many uploads I have been sitting on and not getting round to upload them until now as I feel its the right time to upload them with my new Flickr account.

I will be returning to the Open House London archive uploads shortly but this is another addition to my ‘Conceptual Fabrication’ series. I have done this one in colour with the distinctive Orange tiles that you often get with German metro stations but I wanted to try a black and white image and this was the result, really like the high key feel that the orange tiles create when converted to Black and White.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Half-Life (Redux) by Turnipfarmer

Passeig de Gràcia Metro Station, Barcelona, Spain – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

One to add to my ‘Conceptual Fabrication’ architectural series and actually an image that I took couple of years ago from my trip to Barcelona.

Barcelona is such a wonderful city and really enjoyed my stay there, I had limited time on the their metro to get some photos but did get a few.

This is actually a reworked photo, I just never was happy with the original and this tidier version really works for me compared to the original.

I feel that there is something quite sinister and eerie about this shot, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but I hope you enjoy the photo.

An old photo this one but one to add to my ‘Conception Fabrication’ architectural series. I quite like the interesting shapes and the face at the end of the tunnel of this fabrication that I have done. Its such aa good way to edit a photo that you would not have edited via conventional means, I have probably got enough now to put into a gallery which I will do in due course.

You may have noticed that I have decided to tidy up and streamline my description on my flickr uploads as I feel sometimes the story of my photo can be lost within all the other information I have provided, do you agree or did you prefer the old way?

Fear not, don’t worry my little story behind each photo will remain as I know a lot of you like this part of my photos and of course I enjoy this part the most!

Let me know what you think and if you want me to go back to the old way.
