Caravan

This picture was taken in 1918, and shows a Caravan of Camels on the Mount of Olives near Jerusalem. The picture was taken during World War I.

  2. Good one anonymous! I was going to make a politically correct Eskimo comment, but that was much better.

    I love the site, but I was wondering if is possible to have comment page for the "question of the week" (I guess you could call it). Week after week I vote and want to say something about it but not bring it up under a photo blog.

  7. I love the way the light comes down and illuminates the road they are on. The shadow from the elevated road just puts them up a little higher into the sun. Truly a beautiful photo!

  9. Dan, if you go to Art.com or AllPosters.com and put the word "camel" in the search field there are several really nice pictures. Also, there is a GREAT one at this link: https://www.allposters.co.uk/-sp/Camels-on-the-Beach-Essaouira-Morocco-North-Africa-Africa-Posters_i2652482_.htm

  11. What a beautiful, timeless picture!! It captures that part of the world, beautifully.

    It could have been taken today.

    PJM:

    We just got back from New York- the Egyptian section of the Metropolitan Museum was fabulous, tons of mummies, and artifacts and even temples that they brought over and reconstructed, but no King Tut.

    After a while, they all began to look the same, but amazing, nonetheless.
