Went for a Walk - 2

This post is a continuation of "Went for a Walk" (Click HERE if you haven't read it before). I'm going walking/jogging every two or three days or so, and decided to take a few more snaps yesterday. Sorry for the bad quality, it is a phone camera after all:


Busy traffic going into Manama, with Bahrain World Trade Center and the Financial Harbor looming in the background..


Bahrain World Trade Center, nearing completion..


The emerald green Financial Harbor buildings gleam in the sunlight..


A view from the corniche, with some kids playing on a profile model of Earth..


Work on Bahrain Bay and the remaining Bahrain Financial Harbor stages have managed to push this corniche pretty far inland. In some places, it doesn't even feel like you're walking by the sea any more..


Restricted? Really? Don't think I could enter even if I wanted to.









Hope you liked them :)

Those are beautiful pictures! I always wanted to visit Bahrain but ok when living in Kuwait it didn’t sound as a real holiday to go house next door! :P

But now with the F1 track I will for sure be visiting sometime in the next 2-5 years! At least before my Ice Man retires!!!

ya3ny since ur walking 2 min away from my office, give me a call, ill walk with u.

none the less, u have to teach how to use a camera, those are some nice shots.

switch camera on, press button.

no seriously though, just visualize an image, with multi layers (close objects, far objects), imagine a frame, consider the right angle (especially considering where light falls on whatever objects youre shooting). Its a full process, I dunno. This is a really crappy camera phone; I don't carry my regular camera when running.

Healthy all the way! Nice pix

Seroo said...

do you live near where I work? Or do you deliberately go drive over to take a walk on the corniche?

I work in Ahli Bank in Seef; I usually go there after work.

I really like this blog, i was curious if anyone had any info on the great hydroponics site, because I was really looking forward to buying a complete hydroponics system for my home. That was an interesting comment that you made though, there was also a hydroponics site that had these hydroponics systems that were cool so can someone please help.
