Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
While visiting Damascus circa 2000, I entered the Omayad Mosque with my trusty Nikon and 80-200mm zoom. As luck would have it I noticed the gentleman in white enter this area of the mosque and begin to read as he stood alone. The mosque was quite a bit darker than it appears in the photo so I dropped to the floor, steadied the camera and snapped this shot. It's one of my favorites as it depicts a man truely devoted to his faith.
