Frank and the Alhambra
  ["It's just a model..."]


March 28, 2024

I wandered around Granada a bit and then decided when I couldn't find the scenic vista that was listed on my map in the Sacromonte area, so I just kept walking up until I got to a place with a better view, which was the Mirador de San Miguel Alto, which is the highest point of Granada. The view of the Alhambra was great and I could clearly see half of the city of Granada as well as the quickly approaching rain storm that obscured the other half of the city. I took some pictures of the area before walking back down in the rain. Perhaps I didn't plan things too well. Actually, planning had little to do with it. It was also relatively cool there, in the upper 40s (F) or high single-digits (C).

I asked a random stranger to talk my picture, which in Spanish, when you're on the top of the hill, amounts to, "Por favor..." and before I could say anything else, he responded with, "Photo?" I think I actually said, "Si!" rather than "Ja" or "Yes" or "Oui" by accident. The full size picture will wait till I've gone through all the pictures I've taken.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
