Profile of a Silver Cloud

Profile of a Silver Cloud
Made by LusoFox
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Seville, Spain From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Silver Cloud II was introduced in 1959. Little changed externally but it now had a 6.2 L V8 engine, which pushed the weight to 2.11 tonnes. Performance was greatly improved and top speed was raised to 183 km/h (114 mph), but the main improvements were in acceleration and torque. Power steering became standard. Electrically operated windows were now available as an option. Although the improved performance of the new car was welcomed, commentators of the time noted that the V8 engined Silver Cloud II was neither as quiet nor as smooth as the straight-six cylinder engined Silver Cloud I, despite the new engine's hydraulic tappet operation[3]. The new wet-linered V8 was also a little cramped in an engine bay intended originally for a narrower unit: in order to change the sparking plugs it was necessary to remove the front wheel on the car's right side[3]. There seems to have been a problem with crankshaft breakages in the earlier V8s: this was blamed on lack of lubrication to the bearings[3]. The basic architecture of the Silver Cloud II did not change between 1959 and 1963, but there were numerous minor changes implemented, notable among them a succession of improvements to the ventilation system[3]. Interior changes in 1961 included the adoption of blue instrument lighting, the introduction of a combined indictator / headlamp flasher switch and of a handbrake warming light. A remodelled rear light assembly was introduced in May 1962 and a change to single sealed-beam headlamps was made in August 1962[3]. The Motor magazine tested a Series II in 1960. They recorded a top speed of 104.7 mph (168.5 km/h), acceleration from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 10.9 seconds and a fuel consumption of 13 miles per imperial gallon (22 L/100 km; 11 mpg-US). The test car cost £6092 including taxes. More info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolls-Royce_Silver_Cloud 20100501_7D_IMG_0854_Sevilha

A Dome in the Real Alcázar, Sevilla, Spain

A Dome in the Real Alcázar, Sevilla, Spain
Made by Grufnik
The domed ceiling of the Salón de Embajadores (Hall of the Ambassadors) in the Real Alcázar. The Real Alcázar was originally a Christian basilica, over which 'Abd al-Rahman III, an Ummayad Caliph who ruled from 912-961AD, built a palace, the Dar al-Imara, in 913-914. Over the next two centuries, the palace was expanded and named the Alcázar al-Mubarak, or El Bendito. The palace was rebuilt beginning in 1364, a century after the reconquest of Seville, primarily by King Pedro I of Spain, who commissioned and paid for the rebuilt palace. Pedro was a Christian king who ruled more than 100 years after the reconquest (Reconquista) and built the palace is in the Mudejar style. An alcázar is a Moorish fortress .

Alcazar, Seville

Alcazar, Seville
Made by Aidan McRae Thomson
The Alcazar of Seville occupies a large swathe of the southern edge of the old city. It was initially built inthe Moorish period as a fort and has been added to and embellished over the succeeding centuries to create the magnificent palace complex we see today (still an official residence of the Spanish royal family). The Acazar is an outstanding example of Moorish and Mudejar architecture, being largely constructed in Arab / Islamic style, most of it dating from after the Spanish reconquest and illustrating the high esteem in which Moorish design and craftsmen were then held. Later generations added sections in more native styles, such as Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. The finest features of the palace are the courtyards, which with their cusped arches, filigree wall ornamentation and reflective pools are worthy rivals for the more famous Alhambra of Granada. There are also numerous rooms decorated with exquisite tilework, ceilings and doorways, culminating in a grand audience hall crowned by a gilded wooden dome. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alc%C3%A1zar_of_Seville

Sevilla : La Giralda - 3 - EXPLORE
Made by Pantchoa
La Giralda : It is the symbol of Seville. It was built in 1198 at the request of the Almohad caliph Abu Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur to be the minaret of the mosque called Dhem Mukyarriml. The Giralda is the same as the other two minarets: the Hassan Tower in Rabat and the Kutubiyya (Koutoubia) in Marrakech. These three towers are the group of Three Sisters. The total height of the Giralda from the sidewalk until the vane is 97 meters. ----------------- La Giralda Es el símbolo de Sevilla.

Segunda de una serie de fotos que tengo de la Giralda. De mis años vividos en Sevilla una de las cosas que más añoro es pasear junto a la Catedral en los momentos más inverosímiles cuando los turistas están durmiendo, cenando o lo que sea que hagan cuando no abarrotan la zona. Ahora soy yo el turista. Second of a series of photographs about Giralda. One of the things I most miss from my years lived in Seville is to walk or ride by bicycle around Cathedral when tourists were sleeping, or having the dinner or whatever the do when don't pack the streets. At present I am the tourist.

Vista de la Giralda (Torre de la Catedral de Sevilla) desde el patio de banderas de los Reales Alcázares. Se me viene a la memoria la frase que dijeron (y dejaron escrita) cuando comenzaron a construir la Catedral: Fagamos una iglesia tal e tan grande que los que la vieren nos tomen por locos (esto último dedicado a mi amo y señor Recesvintus) Más información en www.catedraldesevilla.es

Una mañana de primavera, cuando el sol aprovecha para besar a su antojo el suelo andaluz regalando alegría a las verdes hojas de los naranjos y perfumándose con el azahar y los jazmines para visitar La Giralda, se hace realidad el sueño de poder encerrar, en un frasco de cristal, fragancias que recuerdan los olores, la magia y los colores de la ciudad que presta su nombre a los perfumes AGUA DE SEVILLA.

El espacio mas antiguo del Alcázar (palacio omeya de Dar al-Imara) En la casa nº 3 de este lujoso patio me han comentado que existe una cúpula de arcos entrecuzados que presenta mocárabes. Tal vez, el reducido arte almorávide que disponemos.
