IMAGE OF THE WEEK
Carpets spread on the floor of an Iraqi mosque.
I actually found this picture in the back of the current issue of National Geographic when I read it at the library last week; NI now has a feature called "Final Edit" in which they print a photograph not used in the article for which it was intended, but which is too striking to simply be left in some file archive on the off chance that someone might appreciate it later. As the NI editors note, this is a perspective of a place of worship almost never seen in the West.
(By the way, the Image of the Week will now appear on Sundays.)
