The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in Barcelona. Park Güell is located in La Salut, a neighborhood in the Gràcia district of Barcelona. With urbanization in mind, Eusebi Güell assigned the design of the park to Antoni Gaudí, a renowned architect and the face of Catalan modernism. The park was built from 1900 to 1914 and was officially opened as a public park in 1926. Park Güell is the reflection of Gaudí's artistic plenitude, which belongs to his naturalist phase (first decade of the 20th century). During this period, the architect perfected his personal style through inspiration from organic shapes. He put into practice a series of new structural solutions rooted in the analysis of geometry. To that, the Catalan artist adds creative liberty and an imaginative, ornamental creation. Starting from a sort of baroquism, his works acquire a structural richness of forms and volumes, free of the rational rigidity or any sort of classic premises. In 1984, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site under "Works of Antoni Gaudí". .

You know- I agonized for a while over posting this photo. I shot it on Fuji Pro 400 and I pushed the roll to 3200. My intention was just to see what would happen when it was pushed that far. There were some good photos that came from the roll, but the grain was intense. Whether that is bad or good is subject to personal taste. This photo, however, gave me mixed feelings.
I don't necessarily think it is an amazing photo. Yet, at the same time, I like it. I like the grittiness, the blue color, the confusing subject matter. Ultimately I didn't post it, but I was going through my hard drive recently and found it again and thought, "why not?" It speaks to me. I don't know why. So here it is.
Feeling comfortable with images that mean a lot to me as an artist, but are not technically perfect, is difficult for me. I guess the takeaway is that it doesn't really matter. These images are an expression of how I see the world, and that is often an imperfect view.
