Albayzín Neighbourhood

Albayzín Neighbourhood

This is one area that I could spend a long time photographing. The streets have no order to them. They are made from stone and they wander in random directions. Often too small for a car these are typically walking only streets. Its easy to get the feeling of the history of this town. When I first walked it I felt I may be intruding as many of the tiny roads and courtyards run right up to people’s front doors. The Albayzín Neighbourhood is definitely one of my favorite places I have ever visited.

The next great thing about the place is that its a workout to get anywhere. It’s built on hills so a short walk to the grocery store becomes a workout. Many times i’ve been resting on a rock wall when someone walks by huffing deep breaths while carrying their grocery bags. To winded to even mutter a quiet Hola.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
