Through the Keyhole

A thrilling sight, especially in person: keyhole arches in Islamic architecture. I've been to Kairouan (Tunisia) but certainly my photographs are nothing compared to the one here. (And also, my scanner has decided to act up.) If you go, don't forget your rose flower water!

I love keyholes because they are so mysterious. These are such beautiful images. I find Islamic architecture so voluptuous and feminine.

They are mysterious, that's true. I love all that architecture, too. For exactly the same reasons.
