Sharm, Yanbu
'Sharm', Arabic for 'bay', pertains to an actual bay area some 15 kilometers northwest of the town. The area is not as sandy as the case is in most of the coast of Yanbu, and less people visit the place for recreation.

I need a breather.

Some of today’s IG posts. 

Scenes from outside the Yanbu Fish Market (1 and 2) this morning. Being a town by the Red Sea, one of the livelihoods of the people here is fishing while many expats also engage in leisure fishing. 

There is a bay area located northwest of the town where we decided to pay a visit this afternoon —been there before last October 2013 but didn’t really enjoy it as much as I did today, seeing lots of creatures and stuff by the shore (3). But what I was ecstatic to see were the mudskippers grazing for algae on rocks. It was my first time to see such fish in real life! and I didn’t even think they exist in this part of the world. 

On other notes, weekdays have been crazy-busy since 2014 kicked in (for some reasons) and visiting here has since then become more of a chore! Ugh. I still look around, though, but usually invisible, silently appreciating. SOON! Soon I’ll have ample time, hopefully, to get busy busy with shooting and catch up here on tumblr as well.)

So. This is still an IG post, so I’ll still invite you to check out more of my mobile images. And if you are on IG, too, and are posting mobile pictures (preferably?), see you there. :)

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."
