Todays picture is again from Al Bastakiya where i shot a rooftop view with one of the many windtowers in the area. In arid climates the wind tower acts as a ventilation system allowing hot air to rise out the top of it, and cooler directed winds to flow down into the home.  Wind tower houses along the Dubai Creek were constructed of palm fronds known as Bait Areesh and was the standard material used for constructing homes in the region pre-1900’s. The Coral or Sea Stone home locally known as Bait Morjan  was constructed using sea stone and coral from the Dubai Creek which was stacked in a bricking fashion, set with a mixture of mud, sand, gypsum and sometimes limestone. Later the building was covered with a layer of sand, mud and rock for added insulation and protection. The oldest of these types of homes date back to the late 1800’s.  Historians attribute the  abrupt change in building materials to a fire that swept through the Deira side of Creek in 1894, virtually destroying most of the market and surrounding Areesh homes. Residents looked to a more fire resistant material in the construction of their homes and sea stone and coral were readily available. #photography #bastakiya #albastakiya #windtower #windtowers #alfahidi #dubai #dubaicity #dubaicityworld #olddubai #wanderlust #travelphoto #travelphotography #architecture #oldarchitecture #architecturephoto #coolwind #coral #mud #sand #gypsum #historic #canonphotography #eastpics #ilovedubai   #photochallenge #photooftheday

Richard the Lionheart vs. Saladin during the crusades into the Holy Land. - your opinion on King Richard 🤔 ? - The third crusade, which began in 1189 and ended in 1192, is a series of expeditions led by Frederick Barbarossa, German Emperor, Philip Augustus, King of France, and Richard the Lionheart, King of England, for the purpose to take back Jerusalem and the Holy Land to Saladin. This crusade allowed the recovery of a number of ports of the Holy Land, but did not allow the reconquest of the hinterland, nor the recovery of Jerusalem. However, freedom of movement in Jerusalem was allowed to Christian pilgrims and merchants. — Follow @medieval.time for more — #history #historic #france #italy #germany #asia #china #japan #us #uk #medieval #modern #war #conflict #rome #roman #warhistory #history4u #ww2 #wwii #ww1 #vietnam #korea #empire #victory #battle #quote #famous #crusade #learn

Beating the Bounds - South Tawton, 1959. So much life and expression going on in this photograph! Whatever could be taking place here? The Beating of the Bounds is a custom dating back to medieval times and held on different dates of the year nationally. The bustling ceremony that happens once every seven years involves walking the town or village boundaries, sometimes holding wands made from willow to beat the ground at significant locations. In the past, the ceremony was used for people to exert their rights as citizens and pass on the knowledge of where that boundary lay.

Главное вовремя понять, что всех камней с дороги не уберешь. Видимо, счастье не в том, чтобы избавиться от одного препятствия и сразу обрести другое, но чтобы быть счастливым, вопреки всему. Наши беды не снаружи — они внутри нас. Никто не способен устроить у нас в душе такой мрак, какой мы сами себе устраиваем.
