This is inspirational photo #29 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This photo features the sidewalk pavement at the famous beach of Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. This traditional pavement style is known as “Portuguese pavement” and is created by setting black and white stones in an harmonic way to create the typical distinctive tiled patterns which can be found in many pedestrian zones in Portugal and Brazil.
