Photographer's Note

This is the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan, capital of Brunei on northern Borneo.

This picture was taken in 1976, and although the mosque will look the same today, I think the surroundings may have changed.

This mosque is named after the 28th Sultan of Brunei and was built during the 1950's. It was designed by an Italian architect and its style is a mixture of Islamic and Italian traditions. There is an air-conditioned elevator in the minaret and a great view from the top. In the workshop is a picture of that view, which I had posted earlier.

Scanned from a Kodachrome slide.

This is my last upload for a while. I will go on a journey and expect to be back with fresh digital pictures in a few weeks.
