This is part of the 10th to 18th century city wall of Bukhara (Buxoro) oasis in Uzbekistan. What a sight it must have been for caravans coming from Merv through the Kara Kum desert.

There is potential in this photo, a little spoilt with the person and what looks like boarding. If left plain it would get more points as it is a very interesting building, I wouldn,t mind going to see this one. I will do a worhshop for you to see what I mean.
