For days now I've been browsing Flickr for black and white works which I cherish as an art with a special taste. I was lucky to find some truly talented photographers mostly doing street photography and of course I'd be so glad to follow suit but doing street photography here is really unsafe and will almost always open the door wide for troubles at best if not even endangering one's life in some cases. This is an old photograph that I took in 2011 using a point and shoot camera which didn't support RAW and its small sensor meant a poor quality especially when shooting indoors (in low light) but still with the help of Adobe Photoshop and some loyalty-free textures online I believe I managed to put it in context with the theme of being "deeply rooted in history" It shows an interior view of Virgin Mary Church (of the Armenian Orthodox sect) which is well known in Baghdad as the Meskenta (or Miskinta) Church. It is one of the oldest churches in the Iraqi capital in modern history as it was built in 1640. Again, this is one of the oldest churches in Iraq "in modern history" since the history of Christianity in Iraq dates back to Thomas the Apostle. As history goes, St. Thomas went through Iraq on his way to India and thus was among the first founders of the Iraqi Church in the 1st century AD while St. Mark the Apostle went to Egypt to establish the first church there. www.atlastours.net/iraq/baghdad_churches.html en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Iraq
