Posted on March 25, 2017August 24, 2020 by jim The dichotomy between modern Western Kuwait City and the historic buildings makes for great photo opportunities. Symmetry The NBK Tower in Kuwait City makes a great high-contrast black and white shot. Strolling Through the Souk A Kuwaiti couple is silhoutted as they stroll through the Soul Al-Mubarakia Into the Future I had the mental image of all of the Middle East being dirt and eucalyptus trees, and I was very surprised to see the mixture of ancient and modern everywhere. Church and State A mosque sits in front of the National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) Tower in Kuwait City. The Grand Mosque An amazing structure, but we didn’t get a chance to visit. Doors I love door and window shots. The Test of Time Despite being a relatively young city by Middle Eastern standards (founded in 1613), Kuwait City has it’s share of structures weathered by the Middle Eastern climate. Crystal Tower The Crystal Tower looms large above a mosque in Kuwait City. Palm Trees and Sunshine It’s all palm trees and sunshine in this shot of Kuwait City. Liberation Tower At 40m taller than the Eiffel Tower, Kuwait City’s Liberation Tower is high on all tourist’s lists. With 18 elevators there’s never a wait to get up to the revolving mezzanine.
