There is no doubt that everyone is influenced by their environment. It would be wonderful if we were able to completely control our surroundings, not just the artwork and furniture, but the weather, the light, the totality of the world around you. If we were as rich as the kings and queens of the past, perhaps we could achieve such results, so when we saw that this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was Ambiance, we thought of some of the beautiful palaces that we have seen during our travels. The one that has stuck out the most is Alhambra and the combination of natural elements as well as architectural and cultural influences. We can only imagine what it would have been like to have lived in such a magical location.
