You can’t help but admire the uncompromising geometry of this restored desert fort outside the city of Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates.

In the old cafe at the rural museum in Montrol-Sénard there’s a wood-burning stove range. This is one of the hotplates.

Another entry for Mundane Mondays hosted by PhoTrablogger. I took this photograph a few years ago in Abu Dhabi. At the entrancee to a building site on one of the back roads close to where we lived, this otherwise nondescript hut had been cobbled together from odd pieces of plywood and corrugated iron. They obviously didn’t do Portakabins.

I took this photograph while on a weekend photography course in Abu Dhabi a few years ago. The colour original isn’t up to much: an over-exposed (very bright sunlight) pale yellow section of what, apart from a line of these tilted squares, was a pretty nondescript wall.
However, this monochrome version is, in my view, a lot more interesting: the shape itself is emphasised – helped by the vignetting I added – and the whole thing is somehow much ‘grittier’ thanks to the greater contrast available in black & white.
