Theme Day: My favorite part of town

Of all the beautiful public gardens and parks in the heart of the city, this one is my favorite especially in times of melancholy or whenever I want to snap some photos for my street or portrait photography. Geographically located in the Central district and a stone throw away from Al Ain Souq and Al Ain Bus Station.

This photo was taken 3 weeks ago. I have converted it into sepia and added an old effect to somehow create a different perspective.

Word of the day: balad (pl. bilaad) is the Arabic word for town or country. Salaam!
