From the Journals…Even More from Córdoba, Spain. April 14, 2012
Mezquita WindowCórdoba, Spain. I had a great time exploring this city. Not only are the must-see attractions worth visiting, but there is so much more. As I walked around town, I had a great time accidentally stumbling on to cool things and visual tidbits. After photographically experimenting with a scene, I would move on to the next. Every so often I would rediscover the same scene in different light, and would have to work it a bit more with my camera.
This is a stained-glass window in the Mezquita. A stunning example of Mudejar architecture that was originally a mosque, this incredible structure was spared when the Catholic Monarchs took over southern Spain. Instead, a Catholic cathedral was added on to the existing building and is in use to this day.
