Photographer's Note

The Hotel Santos Porta Fira, si a famous and iconic hotel complex in the Plaza Europa area of Barcelona. There are more images of this building and it's more famous neighbour on TE than I can care to count. So I thought - how do I come up with something different?

This POV is taken from underneath the concrete canopy at the entrance. I thought using the opening as a frame within the frame was good but then including the concrete pillar made it look kind of like a giant magnifying glass. The wide angle lens I used pushes everything back in the frame so the building looks smaller than it actually is and architectural shots usually emphasise height and scale etc. but I thought doing it this way kind of reverses the scale of the building as it would be if you were looking at it under a magnifying glass if you see what I mean? It's another one of my (possibly naive) attempts to distort perspective to come up with something slightly different. Anyway, that was my thinking behind the shot.
