Morning walk in Manama central – Bahrain

So this was an early morning walk in Manama Souq in the area which has the famous Bab AlBahrain, in this walk I used my 24mm lens on my 5DIII which was the first time to shoot streets using this lens and it was also the last time, in short I didn’t like that range, it can’t compete to the 35mm focal range. Anyway enough with the technical stuff and here are some of the scenes I managed to capture during that morning including a bonus at the end. Enjoy!

AlDawaser Tenet – Story 004

في أحد أقدم الأحياء في الدمام تقع خيمة صغيرة وسط أرض فضاء محاطة بالأشجار وضعها بعض كبار السن من أهل الحي وهي بمثابة المتنفس لهم، أطلقت عليها اسم خيمة الدواسر لسبب أن الحي يطلق عليه بـ حي الدواسر. بوهشام وبومحمد وبوخالد قد اعتادوا لفترة طويلة بعد تقاعدهم من العمل قضاء أوقاتهم هنا بفترات متقطعة وبشكل يومي بالإضافة إلى أشخاص اخرين.

In one of the oldest areas in Dammam a small tent located in an empty land surrounded by green trees and it was put together by some local old men which is consider a relaxing spot for them, I called it AlDawaser Tent because this area is called AlDawaser neighborhood. Abu Hesham, Abu Mohammad and Abu Khaled are used to be here for a long time after their retirement from their work and they spend their time here daily in different timing with other people.

This is someone I met before in my previous photowalks for my street life project & this time I saw him near his house in a different cloth, good thing is that he recognized me after speaking to him & then I took a few photos in a different way then before.

Old man moments

It’s been a while since I updated my blog with anything, because I’m working to prepare my first exhibition for my  Street Life in Saudi Arabia project so stay tune for it later this year.

I met this old man at the door of his house, he was smoking and just sitting there like the usual, I really wanted to remember the conversation that took place but sadly I didn’t write it back then. I kept the processing simple and in colors for a change, let me know what you think about it

مضت مدة طويلة على اخر تدوينة قمت بنشرها والسبب يعود لإنشغالي بتجهيز معرضي الشخصي الأول عن مشروع حياة الشارع في السعودية لذا ترقبوه لاحقاً في هذه السنة.

قابلت هذا الرجل المسن على باب منزله، كان يقوم بالتدخين والجلوس بشكل معتاد بجانب المنزل، كنت أرغب فعلاً بتذكر المحادثة التي دارت بيني وبينه ولكن للأسف لم أقم بكتابتها في ذلك الوقت. عملت على المعالجة بشكل بسيط وملون من باب التغيير لذا أخبروني برأيكم بها
