Speed of Light

If ever I have a dream at this very moment. I want to be like a speeding light. I want to go home and be with my family in the Philippines. Hug and kiss them for a while, then I’ll go back here again in Saudi because I have to work¬†next morning. ūüėÄ

Two Friendly Pakistani

Let me give way to this two Pakistani expat who allowed me to take a photo of them during one of my walks here in Jeddah. They were waiting for the prayer time to start when I approached them. A friendly smile is what I got.

Solitary

solitude

Go on my darling, move away
but my love for you shall stay.

This day honey I set you free
but sweet memories shall remain in me.

Go forth, find your destiny
With someone you  wanted through eternity.

But if fate leads you to a lonely room
remember, I’ll be waiting here at home.

Have A Break

Unlike in other countries where workers and employees only work for 5 days in a week, it is different here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. People spend 6 days for work and a day for a day-off.

Many expatriates and Saudis grab the opportunity to unwind on an early morning walk on a day-off. At this time, the streets are not crowded.

Here are two photos of my fellow Filipinos having fun mingling with pigeons at Corniche area in Balad.

Flock of this kind of birds is a common sight here in the Kingdom. They would usually gather around you every time you throw some foods on the ground.

Colors #01

These are famous garments use mostly by our friends in Muslim communities. There’s a lot of displays here in Jeddah which I thought good subject for color photography. I was not mistaken, perhaps in my opinion.

Street in Color #01

A marriage of shadow and light is good in photography specially when shooting in the streets.

The scene below was taken on an early morning of a Friday while Salah (prayer time) is on-going at Old Balad, Jeddah. All  business establishments  here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia closes to give respect at times of prayer.

Anywhere is a Place for Prayer

Here in Jeddah and all over the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is a common sight to see people praying on the streets. If they could not go to a nearby mosque, they can choose any place to pray. They do it in groups, but if wanted, they may do it alone.

It’s a good thing to know that people can pray anywhere. It is an affirmation that God is everywhere.
