Market Watch

DSC_2186 DSC_2177 DSC_2169 DSC_2164 DSC_2158 DSC_2157 DSC_2146Tuesday evening was the beginning of what is an extended weekend for Bahrain. The observance of the Islāmic occasion of Ashura made it a four-day holiday, including the regular Friday-Saturday, so those who have been often called Bahrain’s crowds of “weekenders” were out in strength at the Bab Al Bahrain and the Old Manama Suq area. I captured the “essence” of weekend life wandering through the lanes, complete with a mobile “karak” tea stall, people talking on the phone, or simply chilling out on the bench. Life in Bahrain is no doubt pretty relaxed but it is more of a picnic when a long holiday beckons.

  1. Hi, Mandeep ji, I enjoy looking at your blog and the real life pics you post along with your observations. I grew up in Dubai, but haven’t been to the Gulf for decades. All one sees of this part of the world in public media are amazing skyscrapers and fashionable people. Your pictures remind me of the Dubai i grew up in.. its real. Lovely blog and you definitely have a way of bring more meaning to your photos with your candid comments. Thank you for sharing!
