Postcards from Spain | The Doors and Windows of Granada

~ ~
Four days of flanerie in Granada in the Andalucian region of Spain could make anyone rapturous. It was my first visit to the beautiful country and I'm in love with the place, the people and the architecture.

And what does one do when one travels to another land? Send postcards to one's dear ones. I'll be sending you a bunch of postcards every day for the next few days, dear readers. I'd love to have you reply to them.

Can anyone help me translate that graffiti? What does it mean?

Hakuna Matata anyone?

Or Sleepy Pup perhaps?

I love Granada, have been there a couple of times & would love to go back one day - watching the sun set over the Alhambra from the Albaicin is one of the great sights in the world!

Jyoti said...

I love the colours. ONe of you best pics. Eagerly waiting for the next set. :-P

Erinn said...

Wonderful! I particularly like the shots that highlight the Moorish influences on architecture in some parts of Spain. This only fuels my desire to visit Spain.

Raja said...

I love Doors. And it's not just cause I'm a Morrison groupie.
lovely themed post, keep up the postcards.

Lovely photos, Flaneurbanite. Pity about the graffiti on the studded door. I guess some would say it adds to the photo; me, I think it would have been better without it. But there's some beautiful architecture there for sure.

And funnily enough, my daughter was asking for Hakuna Matata (The Lion King) this morning. I had to do a double-take when I saw that on the photo above.

Nice work as usual.

Shivangi: Thank you! :)

Rahul: Thanks:) Do keep visiting:)

Jonny: Granada is just beautiful. We tried to see the sun set over the Alhambra but missed it! I'd love to go back there again someday.

Jyoti: Thank you:) More postcards coming soon:)

Flaneurbanite said...

Erinn: You must! It is an incredibly beautiful region and the people are lovely :) Andalucia, in particular, has a lot of Moorish architecture and the Alhambra is one of the finest examples of it. Thanks for your feedback, do keep visiting :)

Flaneurbanite said...

Surajit: Thank you :) More coming soon.

Jyothy: Thank you:) The first pic is from the Alhambra. I noticed that old lady from afar - it's a very zoomed in shot, hence a bit grainy....

Raja: Haha! Thanks for the comment, do keep visiting - there'll be a bunch os new postcards here everyday for the next few days. :)

Chailey: I agree with you about the studded door - it is so beautiful and the graffiti just mars it - no two ways about that. But then it struck me that Granada was full of graffiti. Graffiti in the sense of the subversive - I wouldn't call most of it street art in the context of Granada. I wonder why.
The Hakuna Matata coincidence wasa funny! :)


Reena: You like it!:) Do come back for more:)

Lovely pics flaneuse! Such a beautiful place- I am raring to go like many others on this page.
The idea of close-up shots is great...and now maybe you will zoom-out a bit for the next set of postcards? Motion from one series to the other! I am just second guessing you in happy anticipation :)

Flaneurbanite said...

bigapplejuice: Well predicted!:) There's going to be a lot of variation in the postcard themes - keep watching!
