Old Barcelona, through the lens of the Nokia Lumia 1020

Well, I tried to get my hands on the Nokia Lumia Icon once more, but I failed. There's not much PureView news coming from the Mobile Congress this year - in fact, the Nokia 808 PureView was the only time there was PureView news coming from Barcelona.

Even stranger, you will find all kinds of typical Nokia things promoted (from Refocus to Storyteller, Nokia Here et cetera) but you won't find the word PureView anywhere. There's even no #ZoomReinvented to be found either. It's remarkable, really, but many people from Nokia didn't seem to realize it themselves.

In this post I'll be sharing some of the PureView shots I captured in Barcelona with the Nokia Lumia 1020, most of them captured last Sunday, wandering through Barcelona with a friend. I made a strict selection of the shots I think are actually worth sharing. This is supposed to be the oldest naturel well in Barcelona - not sure if it's true, but it definetly looks old.

Even older - or maybe from the same period: a part of a Roman temple recovered in Barcelona, the August Temple. I had no idea this about 2000 year old palace even existed in Barcelona.

Around the doors in these walls, you'll see bullet holes, coming from the Spanish Civil War.

Just a street scene I happened to like...

A fantastic wall painting.

And to conclude: I think one of the most beautiful shots I ever got from the Nokia Lumia 1020. Shot at night, at 1/10 sec and ISO 800. It's not completely sharp, but without a tripod, I'm not complaining...

If there's more news to come from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, I will let you know - here, or on Twitter. You'll find the original 5MP shots (and even a few more :-) on Flickr. Enjoy!
