Super Moon

So apparently the moon tonight is closer to earth and brighter than it has been in 18 years. Took some photos; whoa, that's a big moon (click for large size).

Let's hope it brings hope and peace for the whole world. Doesn't seem likely given the state of the planet at the moment, but hey, worth a try.

Taken with a Canon 7D and 70-300mm lens, 1/15 at F45, ISO100. For more info on 'Super Moon, click here.

'Bahrain Unite' Video

Bahrain's been going through a long struggle since the 14th of February 2011; the biggest casualty is the division of the people. As part of the #UniteBH movement, some local Bahraini artists got together to produce a unity track for Bahrain, and we put a short video for it bringing people from all over the island. Doesn't matter if you're Sunni, Shiaa, Christian, Indian, Arab, English, man, woman, boy or girl, whoever you are or wherever you are from, we all make up one Bahrain. Hope this video inspires and helps ease some of the troubles we're all going through:

A big thank you goes out to all those who helped make this video a reality, and helped us to show the various faces of Bahrain. A great big thank you to all those who supported the cause. Let's not forget why we're doing this, let's all get together and unite Bahrain!

Lyrics الكلمات:

Flipp: This song goes out to every person that truly loves Bahrain, Cause see no matter where you at, This Kingdom needs all of us right now
Let me talk to you..

Bahrain let’s stop this fight and lets unite
Let’s put our hands together let’s make things right
Towards a better future let’s start tonight
No Sini no Shii lets hold tight like red n white
Red like our blood white like our hearts
Let’s have a conversation where we share our thoughts
Let’s begin fixing instead of sitting in our place
Let’s remove that big frown off of our face
See Bahrain the kingdom of pearls and palm trees
Its kind people will carry it with arms and knees
I want to see this place in love and harmony
Let’s begin curing ourselves from this hate disease
Cause I love it and I bet you love it too
Want to make a change and I bet you want it too
Men aldawar lay alFateh lets spread the love
Putting Bahrain on the top and no one above
Listen, This is the time we need to sit together
This Kingdom needs u people more than ever
Let’s put our hands together and start a change
Never never say never for a better Bahrain

Chorus: At the end of the day one fact remains
We need each other to lean on
And after the rain one thing don’t change
Yeah we’re all the same cause
Brothers sisters waving this flag
Its one love, One Nation we stand
We moving on and growing stronger for a better day
Bahrain Unite

Mohd Janahi: كبيره ياالبحرين
مكانها بالعين
كبيره ياالبحرين
مكانها بالعين

Rashid Hanthal:لاشيعيه لا سنيه
وحده وحده بحرينيه
ندعي الله مايفرقنا
مانابيها الطائفيه

Hamad Alfardan: في بدايه الكلام ابي اقول اني بحريني
لاشيعي ولا سني بس مسلم مثبت بديني
يلا اليوم كلنا انحط يدنه بيد بعض وانقول
كلنه اخوان كلنه اهل خلنه اندور حلول
بحرين, عراقه وتاريخ ووفه وامل
كلمه رجال ابكل المعاني بالمجد انلم الشمل
واليوم اشوف الدنيا احسن مافي مثلها اثنين
يعني كلنا نتحد ونحط هاالديره في العين
والي فكر انه يفرق بين اهل البحرين
انقوله مالك امل بحرين ماتحتار بين امرين
شفيد العتاب اللوم والعذاب
كلنه شعب واحد والبركه في هاذي الشباب
راح نفدي هاذي الديره ابروحنه ولا يوم انقصر فيها
ادافع عنها اكل مافيني واكيد ابروحي افديها
هاالديره مااتفرق بين سنه وشيعه ولا طائفيه
كلمن بره يسمعني لازم يسمع هالاغنيه

Chorus x 1
