Mostly taken from the balcony of my apartment I lived in, scanned 35mm negatives, many thanks to Photoshop CS2 :) http://img224.imageshack.us/img224/7282/18rq4.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/9259/21su.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/6402/36av1.jpg http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/1801/41zw1.jpg http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/48/57ka.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/6336/63yr.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/1592/76hf.jpg http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/5541/100pv.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/8189/91hn.jpg http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/7020/83kz.jpg

Crossed wires there then!!! Red X was a term used in Aircraft Engineering records in Saudi, meant the aircraft had a "serious" defect

i only stayed in the apartment for less than a year, most movements at Dhahran were in the early hours, so it wasnt too good for sleep, also, you had to be a bit careful taking pics, I've got a load more to edit, takes a while cos the negatives are in really bad condition (cheap film)
