Inspired by both the Mughal and the Moorish mosques’ architecture, this is the inside view from of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

It was taken an hour before the mosque was about to close for tourist, for the evening prayer.

Jim Alonzo is a coffee-addicted Interior Designer, who loves photography, potato chips, and driving people mad. When Jim had his first Instamatic camera (Olympus) in college, he never knew that it is going to be one of his passions. He set up a small studio and took pictures of his sisters and when he saw the photos he had taken, he said to him “I think I’m loving this.” When the DSLR boomed into Dubai circuit, he bought his own DSLR, and from then on, he never stopped taking photographs. His favorite subjects to photograph are kids and landscapes. He believes that, maybe someday he will have the chance to meet the famous photographers around the world and have the chance to work with them.
