The theme is
I was thinking about something metaphorical, since I’m trying to progress both my careers at the moment…
But I couldn’t find exactly the image concept I wanted. And then I was so inspired by the fact that the Alhambra had inspired the theme in the first place, that I decided to look through my photos of Spain from a couple of years ago. (My desire to see the Moorish palace and fort known as the Alhambra in Granada was the driver for my visit to Spain.)
This photo was taken in Ronda
One of the things I love about Moorish architecture is the way the interlocking courtyards and water features, divided by those magnificent and distinctive arched openings, draw you forward. This photo makes me want to move past the fountain into the next courtyard and beyond — perhaps through the doors directly opposite; or perhaps left or right, depending what’s around each corner.
Perhaps some beautiful mosaic — a hint of which can just be seen through the arch?
This post is my first in response to WordPress’s weekly photo challenge. I’ve been following the WP blog for a little while now, and may participate in some more of their challenges going forward (heh).
Does this photo make you want to move forward?
