Sunlight drenches the brick and stone walls of the town of Bethany, which sits upon the side of a shallow hill. The town is in the middle ground, situated between a grove of short trees in the foreground and fields and hills in the background. Little-to-no human activity is visible from the distant stance of the camera, which seems to be on an adjacent hill. This image is one of hundreds of photographs made throughout Bonfils' career which purport to document various landscapes, cityscapes, and people of the eastern Mediterranean. Physical Description
