People of the Weekend

DSC_3463This is the weekend walk I had missed for the last few months – partly because I had been caught up in work and partly also because we recently moved far away from what one may call the traditional DSC_6745‘centre of town’ – Downtown Manama.  DSC_6748  DSC_6744DSC_6741 DSC_6740 DSC_3459 DSC_3458
But this evening I was back, and even though it was late – and dark – I did carry my camera and took a few shots of people on the move – my weekend people as I would want top call them. Thousands of mostly foreigners gather in the area every Thursday and Friday evening and form groups based on nationalities, professions, vocations and religion – and exchange gossip about what happened earlier that week, in addition to planning ahead! DSC_6749I wish I had re-visited earlier in the day when the crowds are far more and faces are more visible but in these pictures is captured the general mood of those at Bab Al Bahrain – a nation, and its people – on the move – my Weekend People on the move!
