Qatar - Scanned from slides, hence the quality is not the best.

Lovely photos! Where were they taken?

Hi Ms Sparrow, as it says on the blog, Qatar, which is a country attached to S. Arabia (it looks a bit like thumb sticking out into the Arabian Peninsula).

Very beautiful...Eastern architecture seems to have such lovely lines.

The distant past seems so alive here - an architectural style that transcends centuries if not millennia. The dome shaped arched on the portal and window is very cool, and that door was crafted in a way that modern computer designed doors of today do not. Great captures!

There is such intricate details in the stone.
and the man standing in front of the door adds a bit of scale!

I agree, those arches in the first one are just gorgeous! And I like the way that seemingly serious guy is smirking just a bit :)
Great finds - thanks for sharing them with us!
