Photographer's Note

Husyan ibn Ali was the grandson of prophet Muhammad. He was killed in the Battle of Karbala in 680 CE. The anniversary of his death is called Ashura. It is a day of mourning and religious observance for Shi'ah Muslims. At that time many people decorate their houses with black flags and banners.
Manama. The centre.
p.s. In my opinion one of the most safety city with very friendly people.
