Qatar

Having lived in Qatar for 6 years now I've seen a lot of the sights, both new and old Qatar, there has been a lot of change but it still remains some older charm; below are some of my favorite places.

Wholesale Market

The best place to buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish; you have to buy in bulk but well worth it.  The people working there are real characters and have some interesting stories to tell.  The below photos were taken with my Hasselblad 503cw.

Musherieb

The Musherieb is the oldest part of Doha and has been around for a fair few years, the area has a big Pakistani and Indian community, below are some of the photos from my Friday morning photos walks with a group of photographers here.  The below photos were taken with my Hasselblad 503cw and my canon 5D mark iii.

Jaidah Flyover

Another area similar to Musherieb is the area near Jehda Flyover, below are some of the photos I took from a recent photowalk before Iftar (breaking of the fast during Ramadan).  The below photos were taken with my Olympus OM10.

Inland Sea

 large part of Qatar is desert; in the south are sand dunes, but what makes this desert particularly special is the fact that a large saltwater inlet passes along the side, meaning you have huge dunes plunging into the sea. below are photos i took with my Pentax 6X7.

Zubara Fort and around

In the northwest of Qatar there is an old Turkish fort and settlement, below are photos i took with my Pentax 6X7.

Museum of Islamic Art

One of the most striking pieces of architecture in Qatar, the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) is really impressive to see both during the day and at night, the interior has great shaped from all angles.
