Last week in response to Cee’s Black & White theme of sculpture I posted an image of some statuary from the Basilica San Marco. This week’s topic is glass and here is another image from a religious edifice, in this case the mind-bogglingly beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

The rope twisted into a knot leads the eye in to this detail of a wooden dhow that I spotted in the Bateen area of Abu Dhabi city. The traditional boat is contrasted with the modern office blocks in the background.

This week, Frank asked us to share a photo that encapsulates special memories.
Memories of family are always important, of course but we will also always treasure the ten years we spent living in Abu Dhabi.
This image encapsulates both. Taken in the Corniche Park, here with Madame is our darling daughter and our twin grandsons, on their first visit to Abu Dhabi back in 2008.
