Pictures of night out rarnd Barnsley tarn center

Did some christmas shopping yesterday and took mi camera art with me to tek some pictures for uni but ended up going to pub afterwords then getting taxi to barnsley and went out ont tarn. This is the first time i took my camera out with me on a night of drinking and i got some funny pictures of randomers we were chatting to, but its real hard to take well eposed photos when ur pissed. At Quasimotos (Pub in barnsley) one of the bouncers floored this guy who fell asleep at the bar and cracked his head open, i chatted to his mates and he sez i should tek photos as proof. when i started teking photos the bouncer that hit him ran back inside the pub and the other bouncers started asking me what am doing and when i sez am a journalist they banned me from going in the pub! dodgey as but bouncers get away with stuff like that all the time. Heres photos of the night:

Shepherd in the Desert

When me Adel, Mum and rammi were driving to the Dead sea for the day we saw loads of tents, people and sheep in the middle of the desert in sporadic places. We decided to stop and go up to one, Rammi spoke tot he guy in Arabic for us and he was real friendly and let us have a look round and i took some photos. he showed us this real cute baby lamb that was born that day. Rammi told me these are proud people with their own strong culture who live in there communities out in the dessert and mountains keeping sheep. He said they are quite wealthy as there sheep are worth alot of money but don't want to live in the city and prefer a simpler life in the desert. This man lived in the tents with his mother but they often socialise with people in other camps in the dessert. Heres the photos:

Local shopping centre

Heres a local shopping centre we went to alot near where Rammi used to live a while ago, my mum and adel went in the seamstress to get a coar fixed and me and Rammi went round getting some things and he caught up with old friends he hasn't seen in a while. The place looks pretty Rough but most people were friendly and everything was real cheap"
"Entrance to the shopping centre, most stuff in Amman is open 24 hours and if not it closes pretty late, this makes the streets alot safer cause theres allways people around, shops even leave there stuff out at night with no one watching it and no one steels anything, if you want to take an orange or something your allowed to because its allowed in Islam and no one will say anything"
