Balcony love…

Valencia in the spring was full of wonders. There were just so many visual delights and so much that I wanted to preserve with my camera.

Now that I’m back from my Spanish odyssey, and as I go through my images, I notice a preoccupation with certain subjects — balconies being one of them.

It seems I was always looking up to appreciate elegant and intricate balcony design, which also has a very functional use.

The hot and sunny Mediterranean climate is perfectly suited to balconies from where residents can enjoy their own outdoor space, or simply watch the world go by on bustling streets below.

I’m drawn to the symmetry and repetition of multiple similar balconies, as well as the opportunities they provide for individual self-expression.

Here are just a few examples.
