My World #54: Most Viewed in Flickr

04 Jan

Happy New Year everybody.  I hope 2010 will be kind to all.

I must admit that I have been really at a lost for posting ideas.  I can of course refer the My World post to my photo blog where I am continuing to run a series on Barcelona.  However, I have always wanted this blog to be separate from my photoblog, so I went to my flickr account and check what else I have out there that have not been featured here.  I checked my daily activity and found that again this photo was viewed more times than the rest.

According to Flickr, this photo of a ruin in Sonargaon/Panam City has been viewed 790 times since I posted it January 2008.  Middle of last year I was contacted by someone from Global Heritage Fund for permission to use this in the website that they are putting together.  Of course I gave permission, because this is one site that needs to be put into heritage status and be preserved.  Its interiors are in sorry state and it truly needs government and nongovernment assistance and protection.

This used to be the the ancient capital of Isa Khan’s kingdom in Bengal.  This is located in Panam City, just outside of Dhaka in Bangladesh.

Join us in featuring and sharing your world here.

    Marvelous capture of a truly beautiful building! I do hope it gets the assistance and protection that it needs. It would be such a loss if it continues to fall into ruin.

    Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

    Small wonder it has been viewed so often! A lovely place and shot.The muted colours and water give it quite a Vnetian tuch.

    What a wonderful old building. I have trouble coming up with something for my world sometimes too and feel like I get repetitious. You always have such great photography and posts.

    It’s a beautiful building. Definitely faded glory, though. How great that you have a part in helping to raise its profile. Well done and congratulations!

    Definitely looks like a venetian architecture. It really needs an assistance. Buildings like that should be preserved.

    How I wish I could view your photos in flickr. Unfortunately, Etisalat ( the telecom provider here in UAE) blocked the site.

    Have a nice day.

    A great old building, it would be a shame to have it crumble to ruin.

    So true. Buildings that banner the grandeur of the past need be preserved or restored. You did justice by taking a great shot. So, don’t wonder now why many have viewed the frame. And thanks for sharing, otherwise I would have not seen it. Happy New Year!

    At first I thought this was in Europe. I love ruins and historical sites and I love it when they are photographed to be appreciated and to raise awareness that they should be kept for posterity.
