Besides the amazing sculptures all over the city of Jeddah, I also have a thing for the minarets of the many mosques around here. Mosques are everywhere – every couple of blocks you can find one. The minarets are usually topped off with a crescent moon, which has become symbolic of Islam. The holy month of Ramadan when all good Muslims fast during the daylight hours is determined by the phases of the moon. I liked this shot of the minaret floating against the cloudy sky and the stark contrast of the heaviness of the overhang of the building.
I’d like to wish you Peace and Blessings during this special season and to thank you for visiting my blog throughout the year.

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
