In Valencia our hotel was situated right next to the port. Being from the Liverpool City Region we love a good port. It was interesting seeing familiar ships visiting. Our main reason for being here was not to look at the port though. It was to sit on the beach and rest after running the Liverpool 2011 Marathon. That said, you can’t keep an architectural photographer from wanting to explore and we didn’t have to go far to find an interesting building.

Vales e Vents aka the America’s Cup Building was built in 2007 for the International Yacht Race. I enjoyed playing with the clean lines in the early morning sun. It feels like it was designed by Sir Johnny Ive.
