Photographer's Note

At the height of summer 1970 I made my first journey outside Europe. In temperatures often reaching well above 40° C I spent five weeks travelling through the Middle East.
This picture is from Mosul in northern Iraq, showing the famous leaning 12th century minaret of the Nur al-Din mosque. Most of the mosque was destroyed in 1942. According to what I have figured out from the internet the minaret is still standing, in spite of the ongoing war.
This picture was taken with a very simple camera, I don't even remember what kind, and scanned from a slide. It's the oldest photo I have posted on TE so far.
