Goal #1: To Have FUN!
Goal #2: Hablar Español
Goal #3: To Master Photography 101
Yolanda came to meet me in Plaza Nueva and it turned out I was the only one on the tour! She and I immediately hit it off and started walking through the city while talking (in Spanish) about the basics of photography and my camera. Although I was hearing some photo-related words for the first time, I was able to understand most of what she said out of context. She helped me understand the core elements of photography that I had learned before but she really helped me understand how they all work together (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance, metering). At the end of our three-hour tour, we chatted over a drink at a pub that overlooked the Alhambra.
There you have it: fun, Spanish and photography – totally unexpected trio, but it was amazing!
