Pounding the Pavement

So I was looking online for some daily inspiration. I thought what better than to look to the home country, Portugal. There are some great designers and some great work everywhere I look. There are plenty examples of contemporary work but I love the homage to the historic. What is shown below are called Calçadas. These are a series of intricate designs, typically made of cobblestone on the many walkways in Portugal. As a kid I recall taking many walks and seeing various designs. Here I am showing a few examples of the traditional pavement designs.
