Revealing Layers of Alhambra’s Past

My submission for the this week’s photo challenge brought me back to Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain. The wealth of its architecture unfolds past layers that display the interplay of religion, politics and royalty with power.

As power is volatile as passion and it likes to change hands, artisans imprinted on the walls of Alhambra, the taste and glory of its various masters across centuries.

    1. Thank you, my lovely!
      You’d be crazy there. Apart from being a very hot day, and having decided to walk all the way uphill to get there, instead of taking a bus, we were pretty much appreciated excited to stay 4 hours visiting all premises and snapping countless photos. I think I have shots for my entire blog life!


      1. Oh, so many places I haven’t been! Southeast Asia is a big missing piece … and Antartica! (and more, of course.) The more I travel, the bigger the world seems.


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
