The Temple Mount


Leica MP / 35mm / c. 2018 Jerusalem

This shot is from the opposite corner of the Temple Mount from where the Garden of Gethsemane is located. In all, the temple mount plaza is around 30 acres and houses several mosques. It is also the place where the first and second temples were constructed and destroyed and the space came under Muslim control. The rainbow effect on the left of the frame is a light leak. This was the very first shot on the roll and half the frame generally doesn’t come out due to exposure to light.
