In Buenos Aires, the doors took hold of my attention and then in Madrid, the resemblance of ornate doorways made it clear where the influence orginated. The architecture, overall was so captivating, but on every street, narrow or wide, it was the balconies that dominated the scene. Romeo could have easily called out to his rose, Juliet, from below one of these ornate outdoor spaces. Some were adorned with flowers from its owners, some were made of carved white stone and other felt specifically for enjoying a smoke in the cool evenings.
Thanks for sharing this with me!
