Photo of the Week?

This week’s photo was taken somewhere in Israel. I think it’s an interesting photo because the blue contrasts with the stone. If you take away the strong blue of the Israel/Mediterranean sky it’s pretty much monochrome, the Jerusalem stone buildings are all one tone. The great Louis Armstrong sings “I see skies of blue, clouds of white, bright blessed days, dark sacred nights” – seems like a good description.

    Any clear-thinking individual (one with an Internet search engine, anyway), would recognize this as the Fakhriya Minaret, near (as Tom says) the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
