You live in a very special part of the world, and I look forward to your photos and talk everyday. This shot is so representative of many middle eastern countries. Lovely.

A very inviting composition...the warm earthtone colors adds to the mood. Is that a broom hanging a top the metal work? ;) Very good eye to see this composition, bravo.

This is so well done. I agree about the light. Interesting that this culture also has the idea of blue entrances keeping out evil spirits. You see blue-painted doors and window openings in Mexico and New Mexico.

Well seen. There is something primitive about the construction that goes well with the superstition.
