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.
