The Blue Line


The Blue Line, Doha 2012

I had been ignoring this blue line, which greets me almost every day when I look out of my window. Not that I didn’t notice it. The haze and the incessant dust storms have been very discouraging – photographically speaking. The haze had been hanging in the air for almost a month and cleared just a couple of days ago. Suddenly the Sheraton Towers, the pyramidal structure in the left background, became visible and the colors turned a little brighter. What used to be a low-contrast dull gray turned to reveal colors that had all been hiding these days. I don’t know how long this clear air will last, for we are in the middle of the summer. Clear days also mean higher temperatures.
