Impregnable fortress in Spain
Here's a textured scene of a very different sort from previous entries: an ornate, spiked grille serving the most pedestrian of functions: window protection. My eye was caught by the shadows of the spikes on the grainy surface of the building. This is a detail from the Palacio de Communicationes, or Spain's post office headquarters.
...and another perspective of the same building. The sunlight brings the myriad details of ornamentation into sharp relief.
