Photographer's Note

Well, after agonizing about posting a great photo for the coveted "100th", I finally came to the conclusion that I am just about out of good photos again. That, combined with seeing an excellent shot of Sana'a from David Grant today, spurred me to post one of my Old City shots from the city.

This shot really reminded me of the encroaching signs of the times, shown by the blue Siemens & Visa signs, that are slowly encroaching on a small square of the earth that has changed very little in the last couple hundred years. Technology is slowly changing Sana'a for the good of the people who live there, but not for those who go to see an older, less civilized Arabia.

This was taken on one of the rooftops in the Old City. An old city I like to refer to as a lifesize gingerbread house city.

Let me know what you think,
