Why the bump?

Maybe they've got a special discount from the supplier for Ramadan, and they ended up with extra construction material...

So, why not use it all...




BTW, any updates!?


Just kiddin'....

You guys are posting great stuff.

They promised that the clock is going to be ready and functioning within the next 11 days. But I don't think they will reach the 601 within this short period.

That is what you get when you don't clean your lens once in a while in the desert. You won't notice it until you use flash. Thanks for the pictures.

The clock looks so much better now that the hands are black! You don't see that kind of detail anywhere else in a building.
