The Pomegranate Entrance

By roverfoxy9
Ilford XP2 film, developed and scanned commercially by a very good Spanish mail-order company called Foto R3, although I wish I'd asked them to scan at a higher resolution. Taken in 2010. I still use this camera to take advantage of the wide end on my 17-35mm lens now and then.

This is one of the entrances to the Alhambra and is known both as "La Puerta de las Granadas" (Entrance of the Pomegranates - after the two huge pomegranate carvings on top of the structure - Granada means pomegranate) and also "La Puerta de Carlos Quinto" (The Charles the Fifth Entrance - as the archway was built to commemorate the visit of the Emperor in the 16th century.

The people in the picture are coming out of the Alhambra, and are being entertained by a busker if you look carefully. There is at least one traditional guitarmaker's shop very near to where I must have been standing to take this photo, which I wish I'd taken a picture of.
