The longest day!
Happy June solstice.
These mid-month days our City Daily Photo bloggers are having a Festival of the Solstice.
The photo here combines four of the five classical elements:
AIR - The very air vibrates from the frequent chiming in the bell tower of Dormition Abbey and the five-times-per-day call to prayer of a muezzin atop the mosque's minaret.
EARTH - Below the roof with the minaret is King David's tomb, well grounded on holy land.
WATER - Even farther below, ancient subterranean cisterns capture and keep the rain that falls on Jerusalem's Old City.
SPIRIT - The Spirit mingles with the past and present inhabitants of Jerusalem--Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
Fire we don't need; Jerusalem has been burned to the ground too many times already.
FIRE - As RuneE in Norway just now reminded me, we DO have fire in the photo.
How could I forget that the sun behind the minaret is a big ball of fire!
