More Hasselblad Stuff
Here’s yet another one (did you miss the new Hasselblad X1D Review?) from the new camera. Like the shot yesterday, this is a vertirama made from two different vertically stacked photos. Because the widest lens I have is 30mm, whenever I want a wider shot, I have to make a little panorama then crop it later.
The Papal Area of La Sagrada Familia
Somehow we got access up to where the Pope sits when he comes to services at this amazing cathedral in Barcelona. You know the Pope always gets good seats, and they don't get much better than this.
At this level, there's actually a passageway that goes around the entire church. Sometimes you have to go up some stairs and twist around some narrow corridors, but the views are amazing. I was up there with the crew and we had a handler. I didn't realize she didn't want us to go through all these passageways, but we all took off in different directions. The lady started running after me first and shut me down 30% of the way around. But my dastardly friend Rene went the other way and made it all the way around, taking pictures all the way… lucky guy!
