The theme this week by Christine is "Vertical". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.
Today I thought of my Turkey trip and the wondrous vertical structures I saw when I was there. On a road where Paul the apostle may have walked in Ephesus you find a library where he may have shared Christ's teachings. Do you think they kept any of his letters there?
Some vertical structures still stand today in the land of many earthquakes.
It is amazing to see the Roman architecture remaining after all these years.
The architecture of the Turkish people is also amazing.
The minarets are an amazing structure as it climbs into the sky. They are used in the call to prayer each day.
How about an Egyptian obelisk brought by the Romans to Turkey climbing into the sky.
See what the others show on my sidebar.
