Yours are brilliant too. Baghdad has some AMAZING architecture, both old and modern. I hope you will continue to post pictures here - as others have said, this is a city that we don't get to see enough of.

Great pics, mate. The city even looks a nice place to be today, by your pics. Its a shame all those people have to survive in the middle of such a long war.

Thank you guys! I will post more photos but i took a lot photos out of a car, so some pictures are a bit hazy. And a lot of buildings/mosques etc. are covered with blast walls, which ruins the view but i hope you will see through these things.
