This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

Church of Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? I have never been to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but this photograph takes me there. I can easily imagine the dampness of the ancient stones and the hushed echoes. The glimpse of the nuns clad in luminous white lends a timelessness and mystery to this photograph. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
