I'm a bit of a wreck today -- work, work, and more work -- so I'm offering some eye-candy in lieu of book content. Forgive me! I was browsing my vacation pictures over the weekend, wishing I was traveling and not, well, working, and I stumbled across this shot -- I'm rather pleased with it!
Pomegranates, from the gorgeous cacophony that was the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem. Taken December 2011.
