Monochrome Madness 2-35: Gaudi’s Crypt in Colonia Guell

We visited the village of Colonia Guell outside Barcelona a few weeks ago to see the unfinished church designed by Antoni Gaudi. It’s called Gaudi’s Crypt because only the crypt portion of the church was ever completed. This shot of the bell tower is my entry for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

The bell tower of Gaudi's Crypt in Colonia Guell, a village west of Barcelona that was built for textile workers in the 19th century.

Gaudi experimented with shapes and sizes and materials in the design of this church that he carried forward later on with his Sagrada Familia masterpiece.

Sorry but I didn’t get a chance to shoot any Christmas bells this year. So this bell and bell tower shot from our recent vacation will have to do.

Drop by Leanne’s website to see what other photographers came up with for her bells theme this week.
