I need to work for a day and Mum’s going out to explore Granada a bit so I set her a task: take seven creative photos for me. Mum did well and shared with me (and now with you) her impression of Granada.
Mum decided to buy some mandarins … these are quite Spanish after all.
As you can see, Mum isn’t shy about asking people to be in her photos.
Even strangers in the street aren’t safe from her playful nature.
And she has an eye for design.
Oh and don’t think that your restaurant or business is safe from her good natured interference.
She’s a good mum because she even thinks of me and my obsession with knights and all things Medieval.
The ordinary suddenly becomes extraordinary in my mum’s world.
And she has a nice way with people who have to work hard for a living, knowing she can have a laugh with them and maybe it also breaks up their day.
Of course the toro (bull) is a necessary subject for Spanish photos too.
As are voluptuous fountains.
And then at the end of the day she used me in my ‘office’.
I did get to enjoy dinner after work at a delicious little Syrian restaurant that was a husband and wife job. The paintings on the wall spoke of a different happier time for the country. And the food was absolutely fantastic – it’s a shame the country is off-limits for travel right now because I would go just to eat.
