Alhambra, Granada, Spain. March, 1995

It was on this 50th birthday trip (Dr. Blake's, not mine) that I first was exposed to the beauties and mysteries of Islamic art and architecture. Look at this dazzling example here in Spain's best-preserved Moorish attraction. No figures, no saints, only the innate loveliness of geometry and Arabic script. The fascination that began on this trip continues strong to this day.
