    Photos from our trip to Israel in 2011. All taken with Canon, I'm afraid...

    The Al Aqsa mosque, built in the early VIII century right on top of the remains of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

    The Wailing Wall - all that's left of the Temple.

    The Church of the Holy Sepulcre on Golgotha, built by the Romans I think, but with so many additions and changes it's impossible to say what time it belongs to

    And from our trip to Prague this spring, the St Vitus Cathedral - taken with the lowly and much maligned SEL16f2.8 + UWA adapter.
