SKY

And then it burst into flames

The sky looked surrealistic this afternoon as I gazed out of my bedroom window. It was cloudy, as if about to rain; it was windy, with the icy winds (yes, seems improbable, but there WAS snowfall in Saudi Arabia today and that’s having a ripple effect on Bahrain); and it was dull and dreary, with…

The lonely one

This crane (I think it’s that) did not move for more than 30 minutes when I photographed it in Bahrain’s Arad Bay. I was hoping I’d catch it taking off in all its splendour but that did not happen. It was the only one there at that time, though there were plenty of seagulls around…

The Game is on

It’s finally happened. It had to. Petrol prices in Bahrain have today shot up 60 per cent – the first time an increase has been effected in 33 years – and all hell’s broken lose. A litre of gasoline now costs between 33 to 43 cents so one can imagine what it was earlier! Virtually…
