What’s Up There?

Whether exploring an ancient site, or just walking through a city…..regardless of whether you are an architecture nerd like me (or the spouse of one, being dragged through said space :-)), never forget to look up. No saying what you might miss! See what we found, above an otherwise nondescript pavement arcade in Bilbao! And here are…
