The Alhambra

Alhambra, Granada, Spain

"Nominated as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. This was once the
residence of the Kings of Granada. This has to be my favorite of all my Phoons because of
the effort to make it happen. Ahmed and I planned that I would phoon off to the left, with
a grass bank as the background for my white clothing. I was to make my way to that spot
and he was to make his way up the opposite mountain and in 30 minutes he was to take the
photo. After crossing a river and climbing up, I discovered that my spot was barricaded by
a fence! I had no phone and could not inform Ahmed of the problem. I climbed further up
and headed toward another spot where I would be visible. Being so far apart, we could not
see each other with the naked eye. I had a camera with me and took several flash photos,
hoping that he would notice. Then I stood in a Phoon pose for about five minutes around
the agreed-on time, just in case he didn't see me and was taking photos anyway. When I
returned to the meeting point, he confirmed he saw the flashes!" --Amien

Thanks to Amien for phooning (and for the photo idea).
