from the urban vernacular to the urban spectacular

This morning, in my Seattle neighborhood breakfast venue, I had a flashback. The outdoor umbrellas became in mind’s eye, the spectacular Parasol of Seville, Spain.

Because I have been both places, literal form became abstract, functional became stylistic, and I reinterpreted both places with new appreciation.

Through such urban gestalts, the vernacular can easily become the spectacular.
