Photos of the Week: Mosques of the Middle East

Comments Off on Photos of the Week: Mosques of the Middle East

Mohammad al-Amin Mosque Beirut

Just like churches dominate the European landscape, Mosques take the honor in the Middle East.  During my travels in the Middle East this winter I had the chance to visit a few and photograph some of them.  I was rarely let inside the mosques to do photography, but when I was it was a special treat.  I had to go ‘under cover’ in cloak and head-cover which was often provided to me.  In fact, sometimes I was only allowed to go to the women’s prayer area and not allowed to set foot in the main prayer hall.  Regardless I found these mosques interesting and exotic and many were ornate beyond the imagination.  Here’s a few of my favorites from Lebanon, Jordan, and a past trip to Egypt.
