 The light reflecting on the wall carving



 Some detail of the marble



 all the women had to dress in the abaya before entry. I have been wondering what the ladies see through a full veil....the shot above gives you an idea.

 This is a rare shot of me. Richard just snapped but I am pleased to have a record of me in traditional dress

“I heard you’re closing?!”
NEGATIVE!
