Photograph: “Peddling Castanets in Granada,” 2009

This photograph of the Mirador de San Nicolas in Granada, Spain, is among my favorites. The dark-haired lady with her back to us is selling castanets. The well-dressed tourist with hands on hips and wearing a Rolex (trust me on that) is bargaining hard, seeking to save perhaps a couple of Euros. Some onlookers seem embarrassed. Others not so much. In the deep background is the Alhambra, the ancient and marvelous Moorish palace erected in the 1300s for the Muslim Emir who then ruled.
