I wanted to find the way to Rodriguez Acosta Fundacion but not by the main route that all people go to Alhambra, and of course not by any bus. I chose the side streets. It is a district of Granada called Realejo. This district was the Jewish quarter at the time of the Nasride rule. The Jewish population was once so important that Granada was once known from the Al-Andalus Country under the name of Granada of the jews
The Jewish history of Granada goes back as far as the year 135 although some historians prefer the year 70 when Jewish settlements may first have been present.
The Realejo quarter began to take shape from the year 711 when the muslims came to Granada. Particularly from 912 onwards when Abd ar Rahman III ruled the Jews really prospered in Al-Andalus. They studied Science, commerce and industry and also traded in the cotton and silk trade.
It is very attractive area and a pity I had no more time to explore it. One of many charming streets in Realejo. As you can see, noone was there.
Only at home I noticed the heads on the white wall on the right side.

The distant snow capped mountains make a fine backdrop for this peaceful street scene. I like the light and colours and the long perspective. Always worth while mooching round the back streets and wandering off the beaten track, you never know what you might come across.

Hello Malgorzata ,
There are curious artefacts on the mountains in the BG . But this is a minor problem , The view of this typical downing street , with the houses on a second plan , is superb , with many interesting détails .

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical même si il semble pencher un petit peu.Mais ce n'est probablement qu'une illusion d'optique. Le regard suit naturellement la ruelle dans l'image ce qui lui donne de la profondeur.

This is a great shot using the old street to lead the eye into the scene. The architecture is great and you have presented it nicely. The faces on the wall add nice points of interest for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness and detail.

I loved this part of Granada, we actually got lost - and stuck - driving our little Fiat around here. Beautiful vertical frame, and lovely vibrant colours. This street is so characteristic. Lovely shot.

When opened the thumbnail, realized that there is a sense of "sliding" downhill on the alley, while scolling the picture on screen.
Excelent effect applied, besides the beautiful old Granada. Good DOF, double meaning when looking at, with the Sierra-Nevada ridge snowy cap on far away.
Marvelously taken photo.

bel taglio verticale per questo vicolo caratteristico, difficile trovare queste inquadrature riguardo a Granada.
Una bella vista, non c'è che dire.

Ciekawa, stroma uliczka, bardzo ładnie przedstawiona z pełną głębia ostrości, niesamowite bogactwo szczegółów

What a view. As I look into your scene here, my eyes want to look up and down and across and into envy nook and cranny of the scene. These are the kind of streets that I would love to explore, and you captured them with such excellent levels of detail all across the scene. Really really nicely done.
Have a great weekend.

Although the style of architecture is different, this makes me think of a couple of old towns in Albania. The same kind of narrow streets, steep hills and mountans in the background. You should go there :-). It was good for you to include so much of the white wall. Sometimes we get nice surprises when we see our photos at full size.
Regarding points, whether we like them or not, I find it natural to enjoy some reasonable feedback to my photos. What fun is there to post a photo you like and see it disappearing into a black hole? But to receive points you have to give, we all know that. I don't understand those who keep uploading photos but never really participate by showing an interest in others' pictures.
And you know, you get many more points than I, you just spread them on seven photos a week, compared to my maximum two. :-).
Have a nice weekend. I suppose Warsaw is as burning hot as Stockholm. 30 °C or more the whole week. Too hot for sightseeing. I'm glad I already know the city :-).

Une vision originale de Grenade et de ses petites rues. Très bon cadrage vertical qui donne une belle profondeur à l'image avec la vue jusqu'aux montagnes en arrière-plan. Ton travail de post-traitement est un peu visible sur les montagnes mais l'image reste de bonne qualité.

A good depth with the perspective of the street, nice town with white houses, nice format, just a little tilt.

An excellent take of this street in Granada with the buildings and mountains in the background. I imagine that the locals would keep very fit with walking up and down those steep hills.

Perhaps a little oversharpened, and maybe I would have boosted saturation a bit but I still like this a lot. A nice downward pov devoid of annoying tourist crowds, with lots of mood. The snowcapped mountains in the bg make a good backdrop. I might try a quick workshop. Tfs!
