Impregnable fortress in Spain

Impregnable fortress in Spain, originally uploaded by Bitterroot.

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.

Spain's post office (!), originally uploaded by Bitterroot.
