[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was looking at old images from the past saved on CD/DVD. Came across some picture taken in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, way back in 2006 with my late Sony P200 (destroyed by my baby grand daughter inadvertently in 2007). Driven by nostalgia, decided to edit a picture of Female Scarlet Skimmer I had shot on its single annual visit to the tiny school 'garden'.
