Modern Mecca

Is it still the Kaaba (the black box in the arena) which is supposed to be the holiest site in the world, or has Mecca just become another place to worship dollars and riyals (and a copy of Big Ben)?

    Lol, I’ve never seen Mecca beyond the Kaaba. That Big Ben is something else.

  2. That is an amazing photo! I looks like a toy city.

    I love the photo, great snapshot. That really shows how talented photographer you are.

    • I didn’t actually take that photo, nor have I ever been to Mecca, nor would I have a helicopter to take aerial photos. Photos on this blog are only mine if they are listed in the “Photography” category.
