In Europe you cannot check out a city without visiting one or more temples. Munich is not different either.
Even if you are not religious and have no idea about art history you can differentiate temples based on style. This one – in the center of Munich – is a really simple. Its simplicity in colors and decoration really emphasis the size and structure. It also defines how should I edit the picture to give even more emphasis on these elements!
This is an entry. To open up … many things.
More than a year ago I visited the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona (yes I’m browsing my archive pictures). It has millions of small but beautiful details – easy to miss many of them.
Look at this door. This is the way to enter the church. However I feel it opens up many way. The words on the doors suggest to open up your mind as you enter. Looking the details of the door help to enter in the right mood.
I’ve added some more pictures to the previous album. Some dancing ones. However this post is about something different :)
Every week in Herrang we have a cultural activities day when we dance a bit less. One option is a small temple close to Herrang. Of course I went there on a not cultural day – so it was completely empty. Having 24 hours music around you and after complete silence is a real change, a real experience.
Also the temple inside is a real mix of different styles that hardly match your memories how a temple should look. So I was just sitting there for half an hour without making a picture. That helped me to form my ideas how to capture that place. I posted 2 pictures where you can see bigger part of the building however I felt that the mood I’m looking for is hidden in small details.
What I loved in the details that they are far from being perfect. The lines are not aligned, the walls are not even, there are some small cracks. However everything has a beautiful texture. Yeah, it is NOT digital.
So now I’ve edited the pictures till they became perfect – to show the imperfection!
