Shadow of a Star

Photo of the shadow of the gates to Europe's largest synagogue in Budapest, Hungary, courtesy of "fil himself" from Flickr who wrote to me the following":
When we arrived at the synagogue, it was closed, but looking around the outside of the building was amazing, especially when you remember how much the Jews suffered during the Nazi, and the Soviet, occupations. It was approaching evening, and the gates of the synagogue cast this shadow onto one of the pillars, and it was just a good, candid opportunity to capture this ubiquitous symbol of the Jewish faith.
