Just recently, I flew to Malaga with a friend and we transferred to Granada by bus. I then spent a week in Granada photographing the city and the Al Hambra; with its imposing walls. What lay outside these walls was a beautiful and vibrant city with a lot of atmosphere. The temperatures were some days in the forties and this was pretty hard to bear. But with its love of fountains and stunning architecture and not forgetting the people – Granada offers a great opportunity to the photographer.
The Hoover Dam is situated on the border between the States of Nevada and Arizona. It is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado river. On the day I visited the temperatures were nearly 102 degrees – the baking sun reflecting off the concrete structure making it seem even hotter… It is an impressive spectacle to say the least. The drop off on the other side of the dam, would turn even the strongest of stomachs… I was however most impressed by the toilets which had amazing golden doors…which reminded me of the doors of the “Vishnu” temple high up in the hills of the Himalayas, at Muktinath.
