July 26: walk from Castell de Montjuïc – through Poble Sec

Then back down the rest of the way through Montjuïc and back into the city.

Some nice contemporary design touches along the Calletera Antiga de Montjuïc.

One more Miradoresque texture on the Calletera Antiga: imprints of rebar or similar metal rods in concrete, for improved traction.

Back at the Miramar circle.

Approaching golden hour over the city.

An unusual occurrence: a contemporary building within the Eixample. This is on Carrer del Comte Borrell between Carrer del Marquès de Campo Sagrado and Carrer del Parlament. I like the material palette.

Whoa, a sunsplosion! This is the western corner of Parlament and Borrell, and the effect is only possible because the chamfered part of the block (the part facing the intersection) is so much lower than normal.

Chiaroscuro at the Mercat...

Almost home: late sun on the Parròquia.
