Granada. La Alhambra desde el Mirador de San Nicolas

Granada. La Alhambra desde el Mirador de San Nicolas

Give him alms, woman,
For there is nothing in life,
So sad as to be blind in Granada
(Francisco de Icaza)

The poet was right. Granada, the golden city of the northwestern slope of Spainís snowcapped Sierra Nevada Mountains, makes you grateful for your eyes. From the tallest tower to the smallest fountain, it is a monument to the precious gift of seeing. In Granada the meanest beggar is wealthy if he owns a good pair of eyes. But what poverty it would be to stand bathing in that marvelous light, so rich that it casts colored shadows, and never see it!

Love that poem, and I love your fabulous image. I've been to Spain, but not to Granada, and now wish I'd been there. VV
