Are tourists just like ghosts haunting a place?
When we are tourists visiting a place, we are just consuming everything? We "consume" the scenes, we take pictures. We "consume" the culture by buying arts or crafts made for such purposes. We work or produce at our home town, but we only consume or spend in our vacations.
If someone argues that you actually contribute to the local economy by spending your money, then this is "consumerism"!!!
This is a tourist shooting two other tourists in Gaudi’s Casa Batllo in Barcelona when I was having my vacation there in 2010.
Have a great Wednesday!
The following is original post story in 2010.
Gaudi loves natural light. He wanted to make sure rooms and space in his buildings are lited by good natural light as much as possible.
This is seen in the hall way of Casa Batlló when two visitors are seen behind the glass partition with the light coming from a window of the room.
I think this illustrates the excellent use of natural light in Gaudi’s architecture!
To some extent Gaudi is like photographers who always think that light is very important.
Do you think so?
