ancient corridor revisited

the more things change, the more they stay the same… here we are back in jerusalem’s old jewish quarter, some 23 years after i first photographed this scene. my first rendition of this place was photographed on slide film during my last visit to israel. this one was shot with my dslr. owing to a less-than-optimal scan of my slide, this version has better clarity, but aside from that, not much has changed in this ancient space…

opening

after having climbed into the vertical cavities between the pillars i felt inspired to explore the cliffs that house solomon’s pillars even though time was ticking away… there was still plenty more to see!

making my way to the southern end of the structure, i discovered it also houses hathor’s temple: the egyptian temple dedicated to the goddess of copper, hathor. it’s by no means grand, but it is there… further around and up some sandstone steps and i came onto this arch or opening in the cliff wall that affords views of the timna valley and mountains.

Columns And Arch

when one wanders around the bus terminal in the city of san fernando in trinidad, this old derelict structure can be found on the north end of the lot. such was my luck on a lazy sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. there is so much architectural beauty in this country, but alas, preserving the past does not seem to be a priority… 🙁

crazy arch

Crazy Arch

visible from the plains between billings and bozeman are the crazy mountains of montana. this scene, with the mountains visible beyond the arch, was photographed around big timber, montana just off the i-90 heading westward.

though there is not a definite origin to the name, the most popular story goes that a woman travelling across the plains by wagon went insane. she left her party and was later found near those mountains. hence, the mountains were originally named crazy woman mountains. the name was eventually shortened to crazy mountains.
