Naked Statue

The grounds (Anella Olímpica) where the 1992 Olympics took place in Barcelona, Spain are dotted with statues that to some would raise eyebrows.

You won’t see these kind of statues in a public park in the United States. The United States is too puritan to display art like this publicly.

I tried shooting this statue from a number of angles, and the best one came out so that the statue’s head is at the bottom of the frame, with her body moving up to the top of the frame.

The great thing about this shot is that her knee looks like it is coming up at you. I placed it following the Rule of Thirds so it is one third the way down from the top of the frame.

If you’re in Barcelona, don’t miss this park. Between getting there and walking around  taking pictures, you’ll need an entire day to see everything from stunning views of the city at the top of the hill to the huge Olympics Stadium that sits down below.
