Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself

Express Yourself

For six years the Middle East has been MB’s second home.

Mention of the ME conjures up many things to many people. In the Western world maybe it conjures up negative images for the most part. Understandable MB guesses, given that most news coverage, like most news coverage the world over, focuses of the profane, the obscene, the terrible and the trouble. And of course that’s the awful truth of certain locations in the region.

But if you tune in to CNN or Al Jazeera tonight you will not read of the ordinary. You will not read that people of all races, creeds & colours attended the golf in Qatar today and just enjoyed the golf or the company of friends or family on a day out. You will not read that thousands of people strolled along the cornice in Doha, Qatar. You will not read that someone raced a speedboat across the water. Or went for a run. Or flew a kite. All nationalities, all religions and none. Together. Just enjoying a stroll in the beautiful Spring cool. Just the ordinary.

MB happened to witness all the above. He was not interview by CNN. But he did capture a few moments. Here’s a few:

  1. Beautiful. I usually feel exactly the same, but oddly enough I was at Aspire Park today and was actually surprised at the lack of diversity that I’ve become accustomed to in Doha. I found it striking. But still, hundreds of lovely families picnicking and playing football, riding bikes and throwing frisbees.
