Travel Challenge Day Six takes us to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Oman!

Contrary to the challenge, I’m finding it really hard to not explain why the selected shots are my favorites. 🙂

I love this photograph because this family walked into frame at just the right moment, providing more context for the location. Also, the polished marble offered a beautiful reflection. I still remember the slippery, luxurious feeling of walking around on it in socks, after removing my shoes at the entrance. The blue sky and the black abayas added just the right contrast against the exterior of the mosque. It was a moment when I had that delirious, wonderful realization of being very far from home.

Oh, how I miss the world.

More tomorrow from… home! Two photographs from the U.S. coming your way.

Until then,

Post of the Day: Adding a bit of light to the darkness as we get through the pandemic together. This series features travel photos from my archives, shared with you while staying close to home.
