This is a fast, without tripod shot, when I was going to the car after the wedding of a friend.

This is my first entery from a big set of photos that I have shot in Jordan, back in 2007.

I was a bit lost on what should I post as the first photo from Jordan, but then a simple equation  “when you say Jordan, you directly think about Petra & when you think about Petra, the Treasury  is the first thing that comes to your mind” solved the problem.

… Antenna

I’m sure it had a lot of “friends” not a long time ago.

Shot this yesterday from the office on Mar Taala street, Bauchrieh. I was trying to get a shot of the sunset, when this frame poped out! I couldn’t help myself, I had to shot it & post it even before the sunset photo.

The high building on the background is the Burj el Mur.

Karni / Garni Pagan Temple in Kotayk,  Armenia was built in n the first century A.D. by the Armenian King Tiridates (Dertad Takavor) with the money he received after visiting Emperor Nero in Rome.

In 1679 the temple was destroyed by an earthquake, but later, during the Soviet era, it was rebuilt.
