After many months today, I visited Bahrain’s Northern coastline in Budaiya. And for the first time I noticed these incredibly colourful domes of a mosque as I made my way back. I might have seen this several times before but it never really registered but what made it so conspicuous today was perhaps a new paint job on the structure, which made it ‘stand out’ … Continue reading Prayer – in colour!

Yet, they won, as opposed to straightforward pictures printed after just a few minor light adjustments in Photo Editor. That left me wondering … Continue reading Don’t kill the picture
These children, dressed as Santa, are being ferried to school in a cycle rickshaw, in India. Christmas is widely celebrated in the country, as elsewhere in the world, by all communities and one of the highlights is Christmas carols, skits, plays and performances in school. Children dressed up as Santa Claus, performing various acts and receiving and giving away presents, is one of the most … Continue reading Xmas – The More The Merrier
