IT’S THE WEEKEND


Doha Corniche

MB’s below shot is a close-up of part of the skyline of Doha’s Corniche (seafront). The view towards the sea at night throws up the outlines and lights of Arabic dhow boats taking tourists out for a short spin on the Arabian sea, which is somewhat flat and a tad boring. But if one turns one’s head, then one catches the below far more exciting – some would say – view.

The 5km corniche circumference is fully pedestrianised and is a haven for joggers and families out for a walk, at weekends in particular once the sun goes down. MB regularly walks and runs its length. FYI – The yellow building is known locally, colloquially, as ‘The Condom’!

  1. It is a good night shooting. Congrats Mr.! I think we used to work hard to make night shootings with SLR technology in the past. Now It is possible to get very successful results with DSLR cameras.

    • Thanks L. Not DSLR actually. A new-to-market Sony compact camera – RX100 vi. An amazing camera. Night shots especially are brilliant. Hope all good.

  2. What a stunning skyline that is! I imagine it must be quite a sight indeed from out at sea — even with the giant yellow condom. 🙂
