Souq Waqif


A little struggle as I scare the lovely horse with my camera...



... then concentration to perfect the pose...



... and finally the Money Shot.  He even looked into the distance for effect.

There were two of them... I think they're security staff for the souq.

Burraq!

I see trees of green, red roses too.
I see them bloom, for me and you.
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white.
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world...

Post a picture to match these immortal lyrics.

Hey that actor who played Ibn Battuta in the movie The journey to Makkah died in a car accident in his native Morocco...Havent seen the movie yet, will see it this weekend.

I think the horse was doing a pose in the first shot, also, Bu Yousef.

He is truly very 'photo-genic'.
