Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond


I once heard from a movie that ruins are gifts as they pave the way to transformation not to mention to fascinating glimpse of the past. This is what I realized when I visited the Ushaiger Heritage Site in the small blond town of Shagra (about 200 kilometers northwest of Riyadh) the other day.

What I captured in the photo heralds how far the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have gone as far as transformation is concerned. The country has–without a doubt–mounted beyond these mud-built houses.

  2. I just love the color of the sand. It looks so virbrant yet noiseless. A perfect entry for the challenge.
    It’s visually transforming. Nicely done …

    Reminds me of the movie Alladin. Fascinating houses of a country with so much riches even a Genie can not match. Awesome!
