I am going through the Origins of Doha photo archives before we start the new season here in Qatar and I’m finding unexpected treasures. Buildings recording and photography is difficult in Doha, and it is difficult to get clear, direct photos of architecture. I’m not sure if Kirk or Katie took those photo, but it is one of my favorites.
This another one of my favorites–no scale, but I could look at the texture and multiple repairs on the wall for ages.
Finally, I fully intend to use this in a class someday–can you figure out the building sequence?

Ha-ha-ha. So relieved I’m not the only one who takes shots of people’s homes drawing curious glances….
