Happy New Year


I took a few minutes to go by my favorite mosque (Imam Muhammad al-Baqir Mosque) last night.  I was on my way to the co-op & it was around dusk so I wanted to snap a couple of pictures.  Most of my pictures are during the day.  I love the lights shining out.

Who knows how many pictures I'll take of this mosque this year.  It's been a favorite subject of mine.  Some days I get out of my car, others I stick myself out my sunroof or window.  I drive around to get all angles  I always find something new.  Here's to a creative 2011!

Happy New Year Nerissa!


I love this mosque, we have lots here in Ontario...but this is spectacular! What I admire the most in these sacred buildings is their artistic work, could you take close up photos, please?
I want to know what kind of materials are used on the roof and walls. If it's lapiz lazuli stone or mosaic.

It's raining here in Toronto and we have 7 degrees Celsius! It's almost Spring!
