Is mystery in the eye of the beholder, like beauty?
I took this photo recently in the Diocletian Palace in Split, Croatia, on my iPhone while we were on a walking tour of the old city. I love the sense of mystery it exudes. Well to me it exudes mystery but maybe not to everyone else.
The palace was built in a time (4th century AD) when technology and equipment were on a completely different level to today. The Romans were very clever, ingenious and resourceful and it’s a mystery to me how they built this to be so perfectly circular. I am in awe of their capacity to create such amazing buildings many of which are still in use today.
I love the light, the blue sky and the tower just peeping through in the background. It also brings back great holiday memories of a wonderful trip sailing and cycling around the islands of Southern Dalmatia.
I would love to be able to time travel to experience the life in these times. History is really a mystery and this seems to fit today’s theme quite nicely!
Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery.
