Museum of Islamic Art

A modern spin on Islamic architecture characterizes the exterior of the I.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar. As a form of practice, Your Shot member Zeqiant Wang tries to capture the museum from different angles and in different light, here shooting in the early evening. “I had already been waiting there for two hours when I saw a Qatari man in traditional clothes walk by,” Wang writes. “I got my camera ready fast. The walking posture of the man is perfect and can be called beautiful.”

Wang’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
