  • Al Masjid Al Nabawi

    Often called the Prophet’s Mosque, Al Masjid Al Nabawi is a mosque built by the Prophet Muhammad situated in Madinah. It is the second holiest site in Islam (after the Masjid Al Haram in Mecca).* 

    June 29 is the start of the holy month of Ramadan in Saudi Arabia and many other countries. I wish my Muslim friends a peaceful Ramadan.

    Ramadan Mubarak!

  • Field by the Cone

    With the trees and other interesting elements, I thought I would have ample time to practice using the IR filter during the vacation but didn’t have much opportunity. (I had to sneak away from my family just to take these photos… and they had to wait for me, too! Hehe). Obtaining good focus is tricky with an attached IR filter, at least ime.

    Some of my other IR photos: #infrared
