Mirroring a Palm


The Wissa Wassef Museum in Harania is built in domes, smooth soft lines and arches, based on traditional architecture. from the arches leading into the museum the pillar supporting a larger room almost looks like a palm tree.

Very interesting and very different. You must find much to appreciate and photograph where you live.

Very beautiful. Yes, it DOES look like a palm tree, you're right!

Maryanne, I think of you especially today, my blog's first birthday. Thank you for all your answers and encouragement back then in helping me take the plunge into blogging.
