21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Geometric formation

Manar Mall Promenade is situated in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. Spanning over 100,000 square meters, this promenade is accessible from four entrances of Manar Mall. This is created with concrete frames that are arranged in a swirl format. There are almost 1-2 feet gaps between frames. I chose to shoot this location just in the afternoon because the hard light of the sun creates sharp shadows that fulfill my frame as an abstract form. I positioned myself to get the beautiful sun flare to add more beauty to this photograph.
