πŸ’ƒ SEVILLA PART I πŸ’ƒ

Hello my lovely readers πŸ™‚ How’s everything going?

Last weekend I went to Sevilla to visit a friend. It was my first time in Sevilla and the city has really captivated me. Everything from the architecture, the weather and the people was incredible. So today I want to share with you the pictures that I took on this trip.

The first thing that we visited was Sevilla’s cathedral, which is the third largest church in the world and the largest of Gothic design. The Cathedral was built during the 15th and 16th centuries, in the spot where the city’s mosque once stood during the Moorish occupation, that’s why it has a mixture of gothic and islamic architecture. The Giralda (which is the high tower) is one of the symbols of the city.Β  Inside the cathedral is the tomb of Christopher Columbus.

Then we had a walk next to the river and we visited Triana, which the most famous district Seville. The neighborhood is particularly known for its flamenco and beautiful houses decorated with tiles.

After walking around Triana we went to the “Torre del Oro”, which is a twelve-sided tower stands out along the riverfront. Built by the Moors in the 1200s it had defence purposes. You can also climb up the tower for river views from the roof.

Next we went to the Maestranza Bullring, that day we were lucky enough that it was an open door day and we could walk inside. It’s one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen.

So I’m going to end here this first part of the trip and I’ll pick it up on second blog post next Sunday.

Have you ever been to Sevilla? What site did you liked the most?

  1. You need to get your photographer retrained. If you are the focus of a photo, your face should be on one of the “rule of thirds” points, not in the middle of the frame. Face into the photo, not out of it. Don’t have the photographer cut you up. All of you should be in the shot, or at least cut off at a reasonable place, such as the waist. Not in the middle of your shins. Ouch!

    You’re wearing sunnies, but so often you are facing away from the sun, or ar placed in shade. That just makes you blend in. You should be well-lit. The eye is drawn to the brightest part of the image, and if you are just a murky shadow, why be in the shot at all?

    The shot I like best is of you by the river. Well-framed – though perhaps some of the foreground wall could be cropped out – well-posed, interesting background. The one flaw is that you are facing away from the sun, so the front of your body is shadowed. If you are going to be photographed, you need to be lit. Having the sunlight slanting across your body from left or right front will illuminate you and give you some shape to pop you out of the image.

    Having said that, good blog post. Sevilla has some amazing places, and you’ve touched upon some of the lesser-known ones.

  2. Such gorgeous pictures! This place looks so full of culture, love seeing cathedrals and especially any buildings in this gothic style, it’s so different to modern architecture. Great shots, you look like you had a lovely time πŸ™‚
