Heavenly details







At the Barcelona Port there's a wide expanse of concrete tiling where vibrantly green patches of moss hide in holes and tufts of grass peek out of cracks at irregular intervals... such a simple unplanned detail and so breathtakingly beautiful.

It is the unexpected burst of colour and the contrast of growth and decay that makes it so beautiful! Love it!

By the way, I wanted to tell you that I found 2 very old books from the 1880s when I was cleaning out my mother's house. I wish I could show them to you because I know how much you like books!

Don't you just love digital photography? There was a time I couldn't force myself to take textural photographs for fear of what the processing team at the local developers might think of my mental health!

Glad to see someone else that loves the little details x
