Abu Dhabi heat

sweet sweaty heat to warm me

and heal my tired bones

I had to dig deep to find a picture of TRAFFIC for our One-a-Week Photo Challenge this week. There is some traffic there, really there is.

Click on the link to see a whole year of subjects ready and waiting for you to have fun with.ย This picture goes well with Ronovan’s prompt words of SWEAT and HEATย for his Haiku Challenge.

I had to go back to January 2014 when I went to Abu Dhabi to spend two weeks in the sunshine. That winter I had had one illness after the other and needed to feel sunshine on my body to feel well again. Luckily my brother-in-law was working in Abu Dhabi and I was able to stay with him. I spent long delicious hours wandering the beach collecting shells.

hot love

You can see more about what I got up to on that trip here, here, and here

And my favourite shell picture here.

Cathy and I have enjoyed creating a list of prompts for the whole year. Please leave your links to your TRAFFIC photos in the comments and I will include them in my monthly round-up.

  3. Fascinating post. I love your shell-art ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am at present following the Abu Dhabi cycling tour on tv and the desert looks forbidding but the architecture is tremendous.

    • Thank you G.F. – I did not get out into the desert when I was there – you are right about the architecture – some is breathtaking with more being built all the time.

  10. Oh my, too hot for me. Somehow Abu Dhabi and shell pictures don’t go together in my mind. Good to have to do the double take and examine my preconceptions. Great traffic picture.
