I thought I would share some images that I took on my recent research trip, following the swallows to Andalucia in southern Spain.
Even the manhole covers had interesting textures and shapes! I loved this one in Cadiz!
There were very interesting shapes and textures in the Catholic architecture.
Flooring in Puerto Santa Maria
Detail from a church door Puerto Santa Maria
Spanish tiles and ironwork
Traditional Spanish costume and lace
And of course - the highlight of the trip and a longtime ambition to see - the Alhambra in Granada
It is just incredible
Intricate Moorish plaster reliefs and ceramic tiles
And, incredibly, swallows actually nesting in the palace of the lions, swooping over my head whilst I looked around :)
Words cannot do justice to this incredible place
I hope my work can do justice to the research!
Travel is such a rich source of inspiration for me. I took hundreds of photos, and there will be more work based on this research coming over the coming months.
