These pictures, taken from my bedroom balcony, show the unusual sight of a sunset and a moonrise in the same frame, a phenomenon, I am told, impossible to photograph.
Of course, while the moon is visible in one of the pictures, the sunset is in he reflection of the glass facade of a building next to one under construction.
Did I take a once in a lifetime shot? Maybe, I did!
This bench and picture are reminiscent of the bygone days in Bahrain. Set up in one of the ‘original’ parts of the 112 year old American Mission Hospital, it is a far cry from the waiting rooms we have at hospitals today.
Strangely, however, there was no one waiting to see a doctor, enabling a perfect ‘capture’.
This is the Colosseum – and it’s in Bahrain!
Yes, it is the same shape and look as the famous amphitheater in Rome, Italy – and perhaps inspired by its design, but this one hosts the offices of the country’s Electricity and Water Authority.
This is one of Bahrain’s many brilliantly – designed buildings that have taken shape in the past decade and certainly one of its landmarks, south of the capital, Manama.
When I first saw this sight a few weeks ago, I thought a car had just fallen out of a parking lot.
Then, again, I saw it the same night and it was still there, hanging precariously as if for dear life.
Silly of me not to have realised it was just a prop on one of Bahrain’s newest parking spaces, perhaps to attract people to book spaces there. It surely is an innovative idea to have the vehicle placed as it is – particularly because it’s a well-known and rather expensive model.
It’s also one of the few eye-catching sights in the country, in Diplomatic Area.
