While in Durham, just after a cracking lunch at Vennel Cafe (really good quiches and, the one we were all after, scones!) the weather turned south as we headed just up the road and into the cathederal. It is an immensly impressive building, and like all 'big' churches one needs to imagine it the best part of 1000 years ago when it would have domintaed the skyline for miles around and reminded everyone of the power and wealth of the church. I always struggle to get an impressive shot of the outside of a church though, so its either the inside or details that get shown... The interior this time.
We left the Alhambra and wandered down the beautiful tree lined path back to the city having strolled around the gardens.
Before a spot of lunch we decided to have a gander at the Cathedral which is supposed to be spectacular. Firstly, we were well pleased as we were expecting to have to pay but no, it was free. Inside it was OK but not that spectacular. So, we had a nice little look round and left. We then realised that it was actually the church next door we after. We had been in the Capilla Real: The Royal Chapel. Isabella and Ferdinand commissioned the place and are entombed there.
Although we went to Malaga a couple of times when we lived here it was never really somewhere we were particularly keen on... Always thought it was a bit of a dump to be honest. However, it seems to have had a lot of money spent on it over the last few years and the tourist areas at least have really been tarted-up.
They have most definitely realised that Picasso was born here and there is a euro or two to be made from this. The Picasso museum is certainly impressive but, I have to say, that I don’t really ‘get’ most of it. I am sure that he was a genius and everything but most of it looks like it was done either by a 7 year old or someone who is completely off his tits on something chemical! Anyway….
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
