Until land was reclaimed along Doha’s waterfront in the 1970s, the waters lapped at the entrance to Souq Waqif, where traders were just as likely to arrive by boat as by camel. The first semi-permanent shops here were built around 250 years ago. Before that, vendors stood and sold their wares from makeshift stalls, as the market often flooded, and it is from this tradition that the souq’s name derives: waqif means ‘standing’ in Arabic.“Souq Waqif” Lonely Planet
I have been to the Souq multiple times this week, hence the various images from the same location — all shot with my Huawei P30 Pro and edited on my phone using Snapseed. I’m trying to get more photography practice in with my current camera set up before my trip to Taiwan at the end of the week.
