  1. The cracked design in the walkway reminds me of a dried of salt flat. Those large pillars are pretty cool too, not unlike industrial smoke stacks. The movement in the clouds makes it seems as though the stacks are emitting plums of smoke.

    The large buildings in the background make it seems as though this might be government buildings or perhaps the grounds of a large museum?

    • Thank you Jeff!
      The picture was taken in the Olympic area of Montjuïc in Barcelona. What you see as large buildings in the background is the olympic stadium; the one on the right with black roof is the “Palau Sant Jordi” and the cracked design is not a walkway but the edge of a pool on the footing of a communicatios tower. The Stadium was designed by the architect Pere Domènechi Roura and opened for the 1929 Barcelona World Exhibition (and restored for tha 1992 Olympic Games); the Pabilion was designed by the japanese architect Arata Isozaki and the communications tower (not seeing in this take) was designed by Santiago Calatrava.
      The cracked design is made out of broken (purpousedly) glazed ceramic tiles. This technique was first used by Antoni Gaudí in the beginning of the 20th century in some of the modernist buildings that he designed. He was a master of this craft!
