Photographer's Note

"Stop ! Stop ! Stop !"... I exclaimed, jumping on my seat. "A door! I've seen a door". Hussein smiled. He calmly parked his car on the side, and waited for me to take a nth photo of a door. My interest in doors maybe seemed a weird fantasy to him but he was kind enough to grant my wishes...

I had convinced him to accompany me for a "photo competition by night" between the two of us, in Shibam. He had borrowed his father's car for the occasion and we started as soon as possible, from Sayun, in order to reach Shibam for the sunset.

Slightly late, we were not supposed to stop on the way (20 kms) if we wanted to be right in time for the sunset in Shibam but... I saw one door, than another one, than.... you know what I particularly like in journeys?

Improvisation!

But while our own improvisations are sweet to ourselves, this is something that can easily drive someone else crazy. Specially someone behind a steering wheel...

Fortunately, my friend Hussein, (thanks to him!) kept his calm and good mood ; his car (and us) didn't finish in a crash and I took almost as many pictures as I wanted to, on the way, including this one.

We arrived too late to climb the hill facing the city and admire the sunset from there but... mafi mouchkil!





*"mafi mouchkil" means " no problem !"
