Cape Town – We’re always awed by the minds of people when it comes to photography. The act of taking something seemingly normal, and capturing it in such a way that gets people’s attention is a great skill.

Today’s Photo of the day, by Instagram user mrsrosales_ru, captures the Casa Mila, a building in Barcelona, Spain, in a beautiful way.

The building was designed by Catalian architect Antoni Gaudi and was built during 1906 to 1912.
What makes the building special is that at the time of construction, it was deemed to be a very controversial design as it used bold stone forms and designs. It is now seen as an innovative work of architecture.

It was also declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1984.
The building is made open to the public by Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera, which manages the various exhibitions and activities and visits to the interior and roof.
