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.
Tickets for the Alhambra are divided into different sections. One of the nicest parts are the gardens. However, they are still busy, but with a little patience you can still find some peace. Having said that, the number of people who are happy to wander around and then spend hours taking pictures of themselves and clogging up the view for everyone else is not something I understand. Even less do I get the idea of a stick to put your camera on so you can take pics of yourself. Why? Who wants to look at endless pictures of themselves stood in front of God knows what? Why not take some nice pictures of the thing you have come to see? Why do you have to be in every shot? Will you not believe you were there if you don't have a photo to prove it?
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
