It’s a mystery to me!


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.

      Thanks Sue! I love it too and was wondering how I could use it. The theme of mystery was very fortuitous. Glad it managed to take you back there. 😄
