It’s Thursday again..where did the week go? The” full of good intention” head plan for this week’s doors post ran out of time.
So here’s a little taster and next week I’ll take you around an eclectic collection of Arabian doors and windows from this old city.
There! I’ve said…I will do it!
Continuing my journey up the coast of Southern Oman in July, the small historic port of Mirbat is around 75 kilometres from Salalah. Having visited the old town briefly before, I wanted to go back. I knew that down those little winding streets there was going to be a wealth of old doors and windows. This time, I had my chance.
Mirbat’s old city captured me for a couple of hours, it is unusual to see old towns standing in their entirety in this region. Usually razed to the ground for new development, I spent my time wandering around, photographing and taking in an atmosphere of what once had been.
Check out my doors and windows post next week if you would like to see what lies around the next corner….
Taking part in Thursday Doors, a weekly challenge run by Norm Frampton…head on over to check this week’s collection….
