There’s no deep metaphorical reference or profound connections that I’ll draw here. In short, thanks to a recent trip to Barcelona, Spain I’ve grown an affinity for alleyways.
Sure, as you may know, in Barcelona there is a lot of impressive architectural works like Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia (slated for completion in the next decade or so) but for some reason, unassuming alleyways caught my attention too.
Late last year, as part of a work trip to Chicago, I snapped the photo below that struck me as cool for some inexplicable reason. So cool, in fact, that it made it to the prime real estate that is my iPhone’s home and lock screens. Impressive, I know.
Here I’ll end with the pre-amble and show you the mundane but beauty that is Barcelona Alleyways:
Cool, right? I think so. While touristing in some of these alleys, I was surprised just about every time a car would creep up behind me (especially the near-silent electric mail cars) because you (I) don’t assume that the alleys are roadways given their narrowness.
