Photographer's Note

Plaza de Santo Domingo, el Realejo, Granada, Spain.

For some reason, the scene reminded me of the parable of the good Samaritan, though the "victim" doesn't look naked or beaten, and the passer-by isn't a priest and probably not a Levite!

I was also thinking of calling this "The Rain in Spain", but thought better of it.

Founded in the 16th century by the Catholic Monarchs, Iglesia de Santo Domingo (just seen in the background where the vagrant is sheltering) is considered one of the most interesting churches in Granada. It forms part of the Santa Cruz la Real Monastery, where the Spanish Inquisition held its sessions, and it was the resting place of noble Granada families for centuries.
