The message in tiles

I became fascinated with tiles while on a trip to explore the cities of Spain, and everywhere I went my camera was photographing colorful floors, walls and sidewalks. These sections were on a lovely park walkway between my hotel and the Museum of Art in Bilbao. It made a statement about the importance of outdoor natural spaces and the cultural climate of the country. I was impressed.

Tiles are not as simplistic as they might seem to the naked eye. Designs within patterns appear when you take a closer examination.
