A purpose-driven photoblog and tales of an expat nurse (and her family) about her travels around the city of Al Ain and beyond plus anything in between. Marhaba! Welcome to my blog!
Must be a little strange posting a picture of this sort when vibrant colour is the norm.I hope seeking the monochrome art eases the pain of your separation.You are very welcome to the theme.
Welcome to Mono, it still looks majestic even in BW. AL
It is as if an element from a fairy tale has been plonked down in modern life. If it were in a film, everyone would be rushing to see how it had got there!Lucy
Thank you Aileni...thanks for welcoming me to the theme.My expression of sadness deep inside me even in a joyful occasion.@AL,Thank you. It is really majestic, especially the big mosque in Abu Dhabi. @Lucy Corrander,You made smile with your comment.THank you for stopping by my blog and for appreciating my photo.
... And Salam Aleikum, from a Christian friend!
As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting called “5 on the fifth” where You can either take 5 random pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of November (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme. Just post your pictures on your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site – I then update the entry so the world has your link. Remember to mention my blog on your own blog so that your visitors get to see the other contributions. Interested? Here’s a link to my blog:http://thestateofthenationuk.blogspot.com/and a link to the “5 on the fifth” entries:http://thestateofthenationuk.blogspot.com/search/label/5%20on%20the%20fifth
Came by to say thnks for following CAD, and that you're very welcome!I love your blog and that photo in B&W is simply gorgeous!!!I'm following you, too.Maasalam!
welcome to mono, misa! lovely take on the mosque. it is one subject that actually works well on B&W!!
perfect shot!!!can't wait to see more of your pix....
I like the counterpoint of the tall structure against the domes behind the trees.
I almost missed the domes on the left — it looks like a huge mosque! Thank you so much for your many visits to my blog. I'm sorry I wasn't able to return the visit until now but I've been kind of overwhelmed recently by work and personal tasks. I hope things will normalize in a couple of weeks. Wishing you a beautiful week!
EId Mubrarak to all monochromers out there! I took a similarish photo at a mosque on Eid at a Toronto area mosque, but only had my blackberry camera on hand - might post it anyway - or I could send it to you. We can then compare the similarities of mosques in the cold north and the hot middle east.Salaam (Peace) to all!
Hi Misalyn, Mubarak & Salaam din sayo...

It makes me happy to know that my blogging friends liked my very first entry photo for the monochrome weekly theme. Your comments are higly appreciated, it warms my heart.
hi misalyn, this would;ve been perfect if it were colored i think. ^0^but don;t get me wrong, i still love this rendition.
You are correct. Actually I have the colored one. My husband picked the B & W than the colored one that's whay I opted to post it in B& W.
It is a solemn building. It has an excellent shape.
Thanks ruma for visiting again. Ye, it is a solemn place for our Muslim brothers and sisters. They pray 5 times a day, some will go to the mosque while the others prays inside their house or to anywhere when possible.
Marhaba! SHUKRAN JAZILAN for taking time to reading my posts and posting your comments.
