Phodographer Carolyn Lane in Petra, Jordan January 2010
Petra Jordan has been designated one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Petra among the ruins of ancient civilization dating from the first century, the carved rock facade make it seem as if time has stood still for thousands of years. These young Bedouin girls posed with Foto the dog and the modern camera captured the moment making this time stand still too. Sharing photography is truly sharing and preserving moments in time.
Best Foto of the Week!
