I promise this is the last one. This photo challenge is not allowing me to stop thinking! Every photo I have, there is a different texture. Salty walls in a salt mine, honey, fruit, yeasty surfaces, bees… just looking out the window and watching the moon at its perigee (“supermoon or whatever”) on a very clear night, even the surface of the moon… I wish I could feel it. So while I can’t feel the texture of the surface of the moon, here is a photo of the beautiful islamic decorative patterns at the Alhambra, in Granada, Spain.
There isn’t much to say about this place apart from that everyone in the world should visit this culture clash of a city at least once in their lifetime. It is incredibly interesting how this place changes just by walking a few hundred metres!
The fusion of arabic art and architecture with european, muslin and christian influences in every corner, the only such place that I have seen something similar is Mostar, in Bosnia. The difference is that, in Mostar, the division in these areas of the city is much more clear.
Out of the nearly 400 towns and cities I have visited, I would put Granada in my top 5!
