What wonderful pictures of the mosques. Gorgeous colors in the tiles. The carvings are so intricate in the ceilings. Wow. I love photos of churches and temples and have seen a few from mosques. These are far and away the best.

Oh ...also the girls images (the Afghan one and the village girl) were very special ...
