Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details


For this challenge I have to return to La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain.  The façade is amazing, to the point that it is almost impossible to do it justice in a photo.  I sat, staring for the better part of an hour trying to take it in, without success.  Very inspiring, very beautiful and hard to imagine the thought, time and effort that was utilized to create it.

    I wonder, is it too overwhelming in person to appreciate?

    • It is very overwhelming. I could not takes my eyes off it. The entrance is on the other side and I went out the door on this side and literally found a spot. Sat down and moved for little for about an hour. Stunning amount if work
