Picture yourself doing some research about Madrid, because you’re about to spend a few days in the Spanish capital. You find this awesome list of cool spots to photograph and can’t wait to see them in person.
But then, once you reach these places, there it is… DISAPPOINTMENT
Beautiful pictures make people disappointed
Has it ever happened to you that some sunsets just look better from your computer screen than in person? The truth is that beautiful pictures create high expectations of reality and those expectations are not always met, leaving us disappointed.
A few years ago, while writing Top 11 Rooftops of Madrid I realized that one of the things I hated most about finding all these cool rooftops was that the famous picture of it didn’t look as good as in reality. That’s why one of the things I want to avoid in my city guides is spoiling the first impression of the reader.
Therefore, in this guide there won’t be any pictures. Not even one.
Instead, sketches will fill every page.
Help me find the style of these sketches for my future guide
Choose 1, 2, 3 or 4 taking into account that the final size will be the size of an Instagram capture on your phone screen
What is the main purpose of having sketches instead of pictures?
- The first impression of the building will be the one you have with your own eyes.
- It’ll be special no matter if it’s sunny or raining, daytime or night time
- Therefore, no disappointment

Please leave a comment below saying which sketch will both be useful to identify the place and won’t disappoint you. Please note that the size will be like that of an Instagram capture on your phone screen, so quite small.
