Tiny town

Photo 5/52 | A Tiny Town

This tiny town, slowing growing month by month. There’s something new out there seemingly every day. Count the cranes and you’ll think, just how much more is to come in this small area? I wonder what it’ll look like in another 6 months.

Fade to black

January 2019 | Manama, Bahrain

Fade to black. On a hazy, mysterious, dusty night. The horizon fades to nothing on days when the weather report is “widespread blowing dust”. These sorts of days drive me, equally, to want to huddle under blanket and wait til everything “blows” over and get […]

A scene from another planet

January 2019 | Manama, Bahrain

Progress?

Progress?

Construction is everywhere. Apartment blocks, malls, offices, villas—there’s something new getting built almost everywhere on this tiny island. Even the country itself is being “built”—land reclamation is happening at a rate that’s actually hurting the natural environment. Not a happy thought. There’s seemingly no sort […]
