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. 😀
This is my share for today’s daily prompt with the theme ‘sweet dreams’.
This kind of art is not allowed here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This is just one of the few graffiti arts that can be seen in Jeddah. Most of the times graffiti artist do this kind of thing secretly.
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.
Thank you my friends for the opportunity making this portrait for you.
These three photos below belong to only one shot. I cropped it 2 times to show some details and a closer look of the subjects.
It made me glad about the performance of my Fuji X100s in low light condition.
Although this doesn’t strictly follow the guidelines of this week’s photo challenge in wordpress. I still would like to share it with you.
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.
This post is my share for today’s daily prompt with the theme “release”.
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.

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.
This post is my share for WordPress Daily Prompt for today with the theme “fad”.
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.
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.
This post is my share to WordPress Daily Prompt Theme, “Society”.
Today I had the time to visit one of the historical places in Jeddah, KSA, the old Balad. Modernized designs of homes are now noticeable in the Kingdom so it was a wonderful experience to see the old yet unique structures they have before.
This part of Jeddah had been considered as one of the Kingdom’s historical sites. Expats and tourists are very welcome to visit and take photos. I believe there are a lot of great places inside the Kingdom for me to visit and I hope I could have the time.
The people living in the area have been good to me and I never had the feeling of fear getting apprehended by authorities.
It was a great day. More photos to come on my next posts.
Oh! I need your control
Without you, I’m a useless fool
So, please don’t just leave me down the hall. I like to be played
It’s why I was made
If you don’t like me, do a trade
To someone who’ll love me ’til I fade. Without someone, I’ll be just a ball. ———- http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/photo-challenge-object/
