People who often visits the Holy city of Makkah get so busy in absorbing and digesting everything around them, and most importantly; balancing the religious bursts which they encounter during their "usually short" stays, what makes them miss so many details about this ancient place... What even worse; is the locals of Makkah forgetting the very uniqueness of this place "can't blame them honestly as they are walking in front of it everyday, am sure they get bored" until it became a sort of a daily routine... which is the case in every place in the world I suppose... I cannot expect a local person living in the Caribbean to wake up every day and jump in the crystal clear water wandering and appreciating the beauty... I don't know if I make sense or not, because usually I don't.
My plan is to keep showing Makkah from different povs, colors and cultural elements as i can, so you and others can get a glimpse of one of the oldest and most sacred cities in the history of mankind...

I appreciate your photos from Makkah, showing us that people live ordinary lives in ordinary surroundings even in this legendary and very special city. The lack of maintenance has created a rather attractive pattern of peeling plaster on this once beautiful blue wall.

Selam dear Gusti
I really like the strong blue tones here and the wonderful textures of the peeling paint. The door itself is very attractive and characteristic. There is a little bit of over-exposure in the foreground, but this can easily be cropped out or Burned in post-processing.
Thanks for sharing, have a good weekend
