FriFotos: Compilation of stones, temples of my Middle East travels

For #FriFotos this week, given that the theme is “STONE,” I decided to make a compilation post, including some of my favorite shots of┬ástones, rock-carved temples & buildings I captured throughout my Middle East travels between August 2008-December 2009. In passing, I have included all the countries I visited to make this photo essay about the Arab world even more interesting. Hope you like it!
