Jeddah: Derby Hats on the Roof

This beautiful skyscraper of Jeddah has large derby hat shaped shade coverings on the rooftop. The palm trees on the street below finish off the look nicely.

From a different perspective, you can see that the highrise in the top photo isn't really so big after all. It is dwarfed by the neighboring building, which has interesting details itself.

SkyWatch: Jeddah Bank Aljazira

Well known for news in Saudi Arabia as well as the rest of the world , the Aljazira name also boasts a variety of businesses in other fields, like banking, paints, sports, and real estate.  I love the curvy blue glass facade of this modern bank building in Jeddah.  The enormous picture of the Saudi king pays respect to his royal highness.

Gate and Shadows

I'm not sure if this gate is to a villa or a business of some kind. There is a sign above the entrance but I don't know what it says.  The palm trees and crossed swords in the wrought iron details makes me think that it's some type of government facility.  I love all the shadows on the wall at play here.

Jeddah - Outdated Modern Architecture

This is an older modern building in Jeddah that is probably several decades old.  I rather like it and it must have been pretty cool in its heyday.
