Photographer's Note

This photo is unique, because it was taken in KSA-Makkah, where one cannot take photos of the Marvelous Kaba. So I was forced to use my camera indoors at the hotel I was staying at. The people there were more then nice, and I had an extremly pleasant stay.

If you are questioning the coin, it is a political point of view that represents the hundereds of thousands of "American" Muslims that enter the KSA, with now hesitation or even the bit of hostility from either side. It is extremly beautiful to see such a sight of humanity, in this day in age!

With this picture I plainly cropped a few edges, and sharpened it out. Besides that it is fairly raw. Enjoy!
