Photographer's Note

This building, from architects Josep Anglada i Rosselló, Josep Ribas González, Daniel Gelabert i Fontova, is one of the tallest of Barcelona. It is called Edificio Colón (something like 'Colombus Building'). Its construction ended in 1970, and at that time, it was the first major skyscraper built in Barcelona. It is 110m (361 ft) tall, and has 28 floors. I was just crossing the street when I saw this interesting point of view. As the cars were waiting for the lights to pass to green, I just had the time to crouch and take this snapshot. I took a quick look on my LCD to check it but didn't notice that a part of the 'post' was cut off. It was only afterwards that I saw that the composition wasn't perfect. But I decided to post it because I like it though.

Have a nice week,
