Travel Theme: Round and Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

This week’s Photo Challenge is On Top, and Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? has challenged us with the theme Round. So, here is my entry for both the challenges — Round and On Top!!

Update: 4/19/14.

Okay, since I did not give any details of the picture I posted, here are details for the readers who asked to know more.  These gleaming domes sit atop the Central Synagogue in New York City’s Upper East Side. Central Synagogue remains the crown jewel of the Manhattan Moorish Revival. Dating from 1872 (making it the oldest synagogue in continuous use), its beauty actually came under criticism in earlier days by those who felt its excess would inspire envy. Nevertheless, its rich blue-and-gold ceilings, intricately tiled floors, horseshoe arches, and fine architecture have led the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to call it the ”finest example of Moorish Revival Architecture in New York City.” Central Synagogue is one of the largest Jewish congregations in North America and the oldest synagogue in New York City in continuous use.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

Here is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Window.  Looking through my pictures I found several pictures of my cat, Georgie, sitting by windows either in front of the house, or by the dining room, or wherever he could do some bird watching I guess. In the first picture, I think he is hoping he can get at least one of those birds for lunch :)
