History

Just some of the many old and neglected buildings in the historic district of Jeddah. Taken November 14, 2007.

Blue Windows

This was taken in the Historic part of Jeddah in Balad. Most of the edifices here are very old although they are considered historic, I think the goverment of Saudi Arabia is not doing enough to save and restore this age old edifices, some of them are just literally “Falling down”. This was taken November 14, 2009.

Bag Lady

A lady beggar taking a short rest by the car. Looking at this photo eventhough I could not see her face, kinda gives me an insight into her mind. I could almost feel her desperation, broken dreams and broken promises and so on. So sad, so tired physically and mentally. This reminds me of Erykah Badu’s song “Bag Lady” , well kinda like it if your talking about “excess emotional Baggage”. [click the link to listen] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP2h4vhipF4. This photo was taken at the parking lot of Corniche Commercial Center in Balad, Jeddah on October 4, 2009.
