Last year, it was the 100th anniversary of this famous street in Madrid, and this is one of my best pictures on my photostream and my commemoration of this event. I would like to finish some day a 10x pictures – 10x years that I tried last 2010 but I didn’t reach.
The picture was taken in the corner with the ‘Alcalá Street’, near the ‘Metrópolis’ building, outside in the picture – it would be at the left – and at the middle of the image, it can be seen the ‘Glassy’ building a.k.a ‘Rolex’ building , and at the right on the background, the highest building is the ‘Edificio Telefónica’. I wanted to show with the colorful lights trails the busy traffic that has this street, one of the veins of Madrid, and to lead the eyes of the viewer through the perspective.
