Galeria Gòtica – Ajuntament de Barcelona by neobit

This gallery is formed by arches supported by columns with decorated capitals. The date MDLXXVII (1577) can be read on one of these columns. On the top floor are a series of 16th century windows and gargoyles. Two busts of H.R.H. Juan de Borbón and Battenberg and H.R.H. María de las Mercedes de Borbón and Orleans by the sculptor Ramon Cuello, commemorate the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the title of Counts of Barcelona (1991).
In the gallery, special attention should be given to the former door of the “Trentenari”. This room, where a small commission met, was demolished and only some decorative elements such as this door survived. The door was placed back to front so that the more artistic side may be seen from inside the “Saló de Cent” and the inner door is to be seen from the Gothic Gallery.

THE ARCADES by BenoSaradzic

‘The Arcades’

Few architectural structures on this planet merit the aesthetic admiration as much as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
The symmetry, reflections, intricate details and almost infinite number perspectives are overwhelming and apparent from every vantage point. They command the observer’s undivided attention. All of the above, combined with relaxed photography policies set by its management are one of many reasons why Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque continues to attract such unusual number of visitors and photographers alike.
Photographed with a 50 Megapixel Canon 5Ds and Canon CN-E 14mm Cinema lens which is an incredibly sharp prime. The amount of detail, even in the far distance, is staggering.
