Akko by night

Taken during a festival of experimental theatre - very lively and atmospheric, but somewhat spoilt by the frisking at 10 minute intervals.

The Castle of the Knights Templar is a fortress that has been used for incarcerating such a wide variety of ethnic and political groups over the centuries it had the good sense of mounting a special exhibition in memory of the prisoners including their grey sculpted forms.

'By night' has connotations beyond the obvious. I look forward to the dawning of intelligence among politicians so the majority of us who get on perfectly well with whoever we meet face to face can get on with being friends instead of being corralled into enemy camps and robbed to pay for them.
