Rooftop Telecoms Outpost
Since the semi-reliable Internet connections in our building have now become fully defunct, the Veeds Of Arabia website has temporarily moved its headquarters to the 7th floor rooftop venue, sometimes known as the Camp Swampy Internet Cafe.
Needless to say, the exact coordinates of the building are super-secret, but here's a look at our current setup.As long as we're up here with our camera, we thought you might like to see a nice view of Riyadh by night. This is looking northwest toward the Kingdom Tower, about 11:30pm
Not bad for a camera braced on a high building ledge for long-exposure, eh? (2.5-second exposure, F:5)
For a fascinating look into the world of words, ideas and shameless whimsy, check out the Blog In Action -- a tiny subsidiary of the Words In Action publishing empire. You'll find half-baked political commentary, quarter-baked biblical archaeology opinions and al fresco marketing musings.
About the photos
Many of the photos can be enlarged for better viewing. Just roll your cursor over the pic to see if the little hand shows up, indicating that the image can be enlarged. Please contact me at jveedsATaol.com if you'd like permission to use any of my images. I'm pretty easy to deal with.
