I waited ages for this shot in the wonderfully restored area of Muharraq, the old capital of Bahrain.
It was prayer time and, to my right is the wall of a mosque. If you can read Arabic, you'll be able to read "iqrah," the word "recite." If you know anything about Islam, you'll know that this is the first word of the Quran.
Dozens of people men and boys fresh from school passed me on their way to pray. Then, thankfully on his own, a man whose shirt providentially complemented the mural and the sky.
