A little struggle as I scare the lovely horse with my camera…

… then concentration to perfect the pose…

… and finally the Money Shot.  He even looked into the distance for effect.


  1. He had his horse at the Souk Waqif???? Aren’t there usually a lot of people there???

  2. There were two of them… I think they’re security staff for the souq.

  3. Thats a fantastic shot!!!!! Beautiful!

  4. Thank you Marzouq 🙂

    I see trees of green, red roses too.
    I see them bloom, for me and you.
    And I think to myself… what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue, and clouds of white.
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world…

    Post a picture to match these immortal lyrics.

    Hey that actor who played Ibn Battuta in the movie The journey to Makkah died in a car accident in his native Morocco…Havent seen the movie yet, will see it this weekend.

    I think the horse was doing a pose in the first shot, also, Bu Yousef.

    He is truly very ‘photo-genic’.
