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.

the entrance to 44 ontario street – the former lincoln county registry office, now a residential apartment building in downtown st. catharines. apparently the buillding dates back to 1923 and was designed by prominent architects arthur edwin nicholson and robert ian macbeth. the niagara peninsula is peppered with both commercial buildings and residences designed by the duo.

Ancient Corridor

heat and israel go hand in hand; especially in the summertime. after exploring the shuk (the mostly open-air markets) and the kotel (the western wall) in jerusalem, it was indeed time to get some relief from the heat and sun! while exploring the ancient maze of walkways in the jewish quarter, lucky for me, i came upon this series of archways. it’s amazing to think that i was standing where others had, literally thousands of years before… what an amazing place, full of history!
