I was excited because I was going to be visiting an area of Michigan with a large Arabic population, so I was hoping to see lots of signs in Arabic. I only saw this sign, which honestly is not that thrilling at all, because there is also English, but I figured I would try to photograph it anyway. I found the shot impossible to set up in an interesting way because the sign is inherently uninteresting. However, I was determined to return home with at least some photographic evidence of Arabic writing, which I find quite beautiful, and my only shot was ruined further by the bulb mode being on.This photo was shot on film. Taken by carmenism with a Holga 135 BC loaded with Lomography Color Negative 100 (35mm) film (available in our Online Shop) in Ypsilanti, MI, United States. These tags describe this photo: bulb, grocery, and store. Date: 2011-07. This photo can also be found in the album 09.
