Variety and Veneer

Paving on the sidewalk in central market, Manaus, Brazil Manaus, Brazil ~ April 14, 2007

In and around the central market can be seen a variety of paving styles and patterns, mainly in black and white. The yellow-bordered truck ramp blends right in, especially as the rain created a veneer of mud like an artist's wash over everything.

This was inspired by the portuguese cobblestone work (limestone and basalt). There are wonderful patterns here, mainly on squares and old avenues.

Those are broken tiles that are used up to create a mosaic effect I suppose.
By the way did you make that trip? Was it the fork or the knife that evolved from the spoon?
