Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues , today I propose this beautiful and interesting symmetry, with the balconies of a house typical of the Cadiz city constructed oyster stone facade , hope you like it , then some letters on the rock oyster .
This I dedicate to our friend Luis ( Adramad ) for his love of the windows and balconies.

The oyster stone is very porous sedimentary rock formed by the remains of marine shells ( Glycymeris sp. Ostrea edulis and Pecten sp. ) And weathered stones of the sea. This stone is widely used in the city of Cadiz and other places near it as El Puerto de Santa María , San Fernando , Chiclana de la Frontera , Rota , Chipiona and Sanlucar de Barrameda . The oyster is an oyster species , larger and coarser than the común.1 The oyster stone aspect is defined to be brown , contain traces of shellfish ( shell , mother of pearl ) , very porous and very rough .

The oyster stone used in the Cadiz area and the bay has been commonly extracted from the ancient quarries , now inactive , from the coastal town of Puerto Real. Such was their use and importance that was used in the construction of the Cathedral of Seville.
