Old Photography attempts

These pictures are some of my first attempts into artistic photography back in 2003/2004 camping season..
I loved photography because of cars, but then I became obsessed and got to take my camera everywhere wit me.

I had to hold that insect with my hand and place it here for the picture :/

If you like something, you either love it.. or leave it..
Giving time and spend some huge amounts on photography gears and lenses is quite a burden.
But looking through my old collections is something amusing.

Will share some old pictures every now and then with you :)

Saffron At Muharraq - Bahrain

Before I went to Bahrain..
I saw few tweets from fellow Bahraini bloggers about the amazing place, Called Saffron by Jena.

So I decided to give it a try.

I got lost in Old Souq of Muharraq!!
But it was fun :)

Enjoy the pictures 


Motoot.. The fish they use to make Mehyawa..

And Finally, 
We found Saffron..
It opens at 5:00 pm..
we reached there at 5:02.. and by 5:06 it was full mashallah..

The Decoration looks really vintage, with old songs, mostly from Bahrain and Kuwait as I remember 

The place is relatively small but cozy and feels like home.. 

Free dates with Lebneh, until you decide what to have.

Chai 7aleeb with saffron (Tea, Milk and Saffron)
Tastes good, but not as I expected.. the metal mug looks and feels cool! for photography. but in reality, metal gets very hot when filled with hot milk.. 

Saffron Cake (قرص عقيلي) 
Things that goes together.. 

Zenjobari Bread, Cheese and grilled Onion..
Nice for a snack

We also had Dates cake, but it was so gooooooooooooood, we forgot to take a picture of it :(

Anyway, they offer so many fresh verities of food, that comes daily from Jena Bakery as I got to know from the waiter. So nothing you eat there is frozen. 

Will give it another visit for breakfast on my next visit to Bahrain.

My bill!
Sounds reasonable for two people and almost 5 to 6 orders 


Porsche Classic Workshop - Weekend Video

I came across this interesting video with lots of facts and passion.

Almost 70% of all Porsches ever made are still being used.
Thanks to Porsche Classic Workshop. They run everything for all generations of old Porsches. back from 993 models till the first early models like the 356, including some 959s.

They have people specialized in some of these cars and been working for the company for over 40 years, which means they were on the assembly line one day making the 959s back from 1983 till 1987.

Cool huh!

Sebastian Vettel "Drive Of The Dragon" Short film by Infiniti

Finally the short film is out!

I saw the trailer long time ago, back before the Chinese GP. And as you may all know, Infiniti is the sponsor of Vettel and the Redbull Formula1 Racing Team.
He took some Kung Fu classes to do the short film. Vettel now can kick some asses on and off the track.
