These are some photos from my recent trip to Andalucia with my husband. It was so wonderful to take a break from the routine and get away. Of course, I didn’t want to put on my blog the many images of myself or Adam eating delicious tapas (even though they were terrific) or the pile of cats 6 cats keeping themselves warm in one hysterical pile in a garden in the Albecin. I would have loved to show pictures of the Cueva de Piletas outside Rhonda (a Goonies-like cave with 20,000 year old pre-historic drawings ), but they did not allow any photos. However, I did want to highlight something simple that I found incredibly inspiring as a photographer: the ceilings of Spain.
The stunning and famous ceilings incorporate many rich artistic motifs including Gothic and Renaissance styles as well as, of course, many Moorish elements. I can only feel humbled by the great and overwhelming artistry. So, here is a small tribute to the Granada Cathedral, Great Mosque of Córdoba and the Real Alcazar.
