SkyWatch Friday - Hotel Sky

This may well be the last of my pictures from Oman (that all depends on how busy my weekend is!).

The sign on top of the hotel I was staying at - the Crowne Plaza - was undergoing some renovation when I was there.

I liked the graphic elements of the arabic style script, the somewhat out of place looking garb of the workers and of course that blue, blue sky.



You can find more skies here at SkyWatch Friday.

You can find the first of my "wordy" blog posts about Oman by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the pictures.

Apparently, the workers enjoyed having their photo taken! I take it the sign says "Crowne Plaza"?

Nice shots, can't read it :)))
You left the Cotswolds for Australia?

TheChieftess said...

Interesting shots!!! Because Arabic is so foreign to me, the workers look like they could be part of the sign/letters!!!

These are great fun, Stewart. You were there at the right time, but more than that, you saw the complexity in the scene and captured it beautifully.

That is quite a different Sky photo!! Loved the capture. The workers are enjoying their day out in the sun it seems :)
