2017 Weekly photo challenge (week 10) Floor

So this week the prompt for the weekly photo challenge I’m taking part in is ‘Floor’. I had this image in my head of a beautiful Victorian tiled floor when I looked ahead to this several weeks ago, or perhaps some beautiful Moorish tiles. Only problem was I didn’t have a photo of either. 

I remembered back to my visit to Sacred Heart Church in Gibraltar’s Upper Town (the ceiling there was my photo for week 1 of this challenge). 

Outside the front entrance to this beautiful church is a rather nice geometric tiled patio…

Another historic building in Gibraltar with a rather nice floor is the Garrison Library.

In the upstairs rooms you visit on the official tour around the building, you get to see some really beautiful examples of wooden parquet flooring with gorgeous patterns inlaid around the edges.

As there are book shelves and furniture covering a lot of the floors you can only see some parts in doorways.

The star detail in this window reveal is really lovely, wouldn’t you agree?

The Garrison Library is a gorgeous old building with truly lovely floors.

Why is it that when I think of a good floor it’s always in an old building? Can we not make gorgeous doors anymore? 
This weekend, I visited a friend who lives in an older property in town and literally walked over this beautiful floor to get to her apartment. Now this is the kind of tiled floor I had in my mind when I started looking out for nice floors…

I’m joining with Wild Daffodil and Nana Cathy for this weekly photo challenge throughout 2017. If you fancy joining in, pop over to their blogs to find out how to get started.
