Most of my selfies are in silhouette’s. I have already posted a couple of them 🙂 So for this week’s theme from Sylvain, I went through my photographs from Spain, because I remembered some silhouette from there . This one is from Montserrat. It was in a small room next to the place we see and worship the Virgin of Montserrat. The only reason I took this photograph was because of the two colored windows in the background which sort of gave a different feeling to the statue in the front.
This is the photograph of the Basicilia of Bom Jesus when I had been there a couple of years ago. There were making some renovations to it. It is a UNESCO heritage site in Goa, India. It is also the place which contains the remains of St. Francis Xavier. Recently got these photographs polished a little bit using the trial version of Photoshop. I really liked the color temperature of the first one.
I thought I will post pictures of this very prominently visited Basilica of Barcelona. It is one of the highly recommended places to visit, if you happen to be in Barcelona. And trust me, it is worth every second of your visit. You can get a lot of information about this from their website anyways. But it was a sheer pleasure to be there with all those lights and different architecture surrounding you. It is supposed to be completed (the construction i.e.) only in 2026. So yes, you will still see a lot of construction going on. They also have a workshop inside in a different area where they create the miniatures of what they are building and it’s truly amazing. Not to mention a school to explain you in detail of what they are doing.
With respect to the Magic square that is seen on the outer facade of Church, this is what they explain.
The Passion façade of the Sagrada Família church in Barcelona, conceptualized by Antoni Gaudí and designed by sculptor Josep Subirachs, features a 4×4 magic square:
The magic constant of the square is 33, the age of Jesus at the time of the Passion. Structurally, it is very similar to the Melancholia magic square, but it has had the numbers in four of the cells reduced by 1.
