Fences #7

We had a nice evening walk and these fences caught my attention. It's time for my fences series yey!( arabesque, I can imagine that you're smiling  :) and it reminded me of your previous comments that I have a 'thing' with the fences....am guilty!)

Most of the major streets of downtown Al Ain are divided ( according to the direction of travel) by fences. You can check out my posts about the fences HEREThe fences that I have seen in one of the parks of Green Mubazzarah were exceptional. Anyway, moving on to my post for today, I saw these fences in Al Thouba Street, where the towering Globe Roundabout is erected.

Of course I noticed these beautiful and colorful flowers,too.

Definitely these are ornates and if I am going to interpret it, I think it represents the eagerness of the emaratis to learn......to acquire knowledge and wisdom and to impart or share as well.

Word of the day: ustad is the arabic word for giver of knowledge. Salaam to all!

  5. Dear Misalyn, this is indeed a very wonderful series of fences. Measuring the world was and probably will always be something one one loves to learn - being able to construct fences connecting us all, a great challenge, indeed.
    Brilliant photography !

  7. Hey..I love that top photo you know! Looks really cool along with your fences.
    I tried joining CDP but I think me putting my small town as opposed to City wasn't a good move. They don't want me! (lol) I live more in the country and didn't realize your suppose to post every day anyway (duh-CDP)!! Well, till later, Regian-
