La Alhambra in Granada

2011-07-23 2

One of the most magnificent and visited places in Granada, Spain: the Alhambra, a magical place that all lomographers should visit.

The Alhambra, which is located at the top of Granada, reigns over the city and allows you to see places that the human eye couldn’t see anymore from a regular standpoint. It is one of the most emblematic places of the city (and the most famous one), you can see on one side the city, and in the other, the Albaicín, where sunsets seem to be taken from tales of a thousand and one nights.

Currently, Alhambra receives thousands of visitors everyday from all places of the world, lots of Asian tourists, Erasmus students, and many European (and Spanish people too).

Alhambra was the place where the court and the monarch of the Nazari Kingdom of Granada lived, the place is full of art, but one of the most important things is its great location.

During your visit you can check out all the rooms and residential zones, gardens, weapons…well, in fact you can enter fully in the history of the Alhambra and admire their treasures covering all rooms and walls. For more information on visits, times and prices, you can visit the official website of the Alhambra or search in the net, which is full of information about this place and the rest of the city.

I remember Alhambra especially for its sunset, when the sun is falling slowly on the horizon, people say that it’s one of the best sunsets in the world. You’ll fall in love with the city because it’s a mix of cultures, you can feel like you’re in another country sometimes and you can feel like you’re also going back in time.

And in the middle of that, a great natural paradise that surrounds the Alhambra which has passed many stories and battles before all the tourists came. Something almost incredible is the way all the mountains, the palace, and gardens are supplied well supplied with flowing water. It’s constantly moving and looks so magical and special that everyone should visit it at least once in their life.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
