Which Way Challenge

This is my entry for the Which Way Photo Challenge, by sonofabeach96

Sonofabeach96 explains: “This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

I read that the London City Café of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was the favorite café of one of my favorite writers: Julio Cortázar.

It is a traditional café which is located at Avenida de Mayo and Peru, and it forms part of the list of notable bars of the City.

It is said that Julio Cortázar used some of its tables to write his novel “Los Premios”, in the 60’s.

Argentina’s National Bank Building

This building is considered historical heritage. It was designed by architect Alejandro Bustillo. It occupies an entire city block with 100,000 square meters and was inaugurated in 1944, although in that year only the first stage of construction of the National Bank was finished, because it was indeed completed until 1955.

The National Bank is one of the most imposing and pretentious works of Argentina architecture, due to both its volume and various elements of its design  among which stands out especially its gigantic dome 50 meters in diameter (for me, you can’t notice from outside a dome, because it seems only a square roof), judged by Bustillo as probably the largest in South America.
