In the photographer's words: "This is a photograph of Los Baños de Doña María de Padilla, or The Baths of Lady María de Padilla, in the Alcázar Palace of Seville. I took this picture because the reflection of the water caught my eye. The first time I had ever seen The Baths was in a photograph that my friend from Spain, Helena, had sent to me. I wondered what this place was because the reflection of the arches was unclear to me, and when I saw it in person the photograph came to life. I want viewers who look at this to wonder the same thing I did. I want them to ask questions and create stories in their head."
