#FriFotos // Holy Places

I recently joined twitter. (Follow me: @deprturediaries – Yes, I know I’m very late to the world of tweeting — I resisted for a LONG time) There are a couple of features on Twitter that I like very much, one of them being #frifotos. Every Friday a new theme is issued and people around the world post their favorite photos having to do with that theme.

Today’s #frifotos theme is Holy Places. Here is my curated collection of my favorite shots of Holy Places, all from my travels. Enjoy!

 The monastery on Amorogos, Greece.

 Medieval chapel at Antimachia Castle on Kos, Greece.
 The Blue Mosque. Istanbul, Turkey.

 Remove thy shoes from off thy feet… Mosque. Amman, Jordan.

 Ruins of an ancient Greek temple. Now used by sun-worshippers. Kos, Greece.

 I can’t decide which seems holier… the Caldera or the Church.
