For Frank’s theme of ‘City’ this week, here is the view from the balcony of our apartment at sunset. The traffic wasn’t usually quite so bad, but it was National Day.

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Outdoors’.
In the broadest terms, I suppose that any image that wasn’t actually captured in an interior would qualify. However, in this shot – another from Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi – I’ve gone for more of a ‘great outdoors’ feel, which is certainly enhanced by the moon hanging over the landscape.

Frank has set the theme of ‘Worship’ for the Tuesday Photo Challenge this week.
Always pleased to have an opportunity to showcase one of the most visually stunning places of worship you’re ever likely to see – he Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi

This image is multi-tasking as my entry this week for both Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge with the theme of ‘Round’ and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, where the subject is “Patterns‘.
It is a photograph of one of the magnificent crystal chandeliers in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, captured by setting my camera’s auto-timer and laying it on the floor of the prayer hall, pointing up at the ceiling.

Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week has the theme of ‘Smooth’.
The well-known phrase ‘smooth as monumental alabaster’ (from Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’)came to mind when I saw that. I’m not sure whether these mosaic flowers are set in alabaster or ‘just’ marble, but I do know that it’s part of the ornate decoration of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and that it’s very smooth.
