Photographer's Note

Following Brigitte’s
and Didier’s postings, I thought I’d join in with my own Sunday Pixelgolfade. This is of course a view of the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s (as yet) unfinished cathedral. Construction began in 1882 and is projected to be completed in 2082, two full centuries later. In the meantime, we are unlikely to see these towers without cranes around them. The pace of construction is limited by financial constraints, much of the funds coming from donations from visitors. The construction techniques and materials remain faithful to Gaudi’s original plans, and Gaudi was revolutionary in his day in using a type of concrete around steel supports for the core of his construction. The original design covers a vast area of land, and the latter stages of building will require knocking down of some houses across the street – though probably not within the lifetime of the current residents!
