Walk Through…

Darkness, Light, Illumination

I have learnt
to stop fighting
the darkness
that pervades me

Rather,
I light this
little light of mine
and walk through it.

Through The Glass…

Perspective is what transforms a photo that would otherwise look ordinary, to an image interesting enough to spare several looks.

Sometimes, it’s just playing around with angles and lighting that does the trick.

The Beauty of Illumination…

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

Lighting sets the mood of the room and this photo says different things to me

Its ambiance speaks of soft jazz, hushed tones and quiet laughter, of romance and dark shadows, of hidden secrets and open discovery.

In the darkness of the deep, little illuminations of light show the rich beauty of your soul – Jacqueline

Festival of Lights, This n’ That – Echoes of My Neighbourhood

This week zoomed past before I could say hey presto. Phew! I’m trying to exhale and catch up with lots of things.

We’ve had unprecedented drippy weather that I anticipate the heat will heat us soon with disgusting enthusiasm and my week has been a mish-mash of this n that.

From going to view the display of city lights for the festival of lights in Sharjah, to attending a jet-ski race on Dubai marina – those machines are powerful and the riders have gumption – sometimes life seems to be hurtling along on a speed train.

Have you seen the movie John Wick Chapter 2? I went to watch it over the weekend and it was a blast.  I wrote a little review on it in Niume. Have you joined yet?

Do share your neighbourhood with us. To join the fun, check this link.

It’s a beautiful new month, let’s make the best of it.

Dubai Canal Boardwalk – Echoes of my Neighbourhood

This city is constantly changing its aesthetics, adding new attractions and relaxation points each day. The new Dubai canal boardwalk offers a beautiful waterside walkway that runs about 3.2 km each way.

We went there on a Saturday night there were loads of families were out for a stroll, several joggers pounding the pavement, selfie-takers indulging themselves, people sitting around chit-chatting away, boats with happy party passengers cruising up and down the canal.

Interestingly,  there are USB chargers installed in the streetlights so you can charge your phone for all those snaps. Two of the pedestrian bridges are open and the views are amazing.

Some work is still ongoing to turn the place green, however, the total ambiance like the French would say ‘C’est Magnifique.’

Oh, my word! Lady Lee knows how to lay a table that would make you drool and the snowy shots of Munich are simply enchanting. They look like postcards. Take a peek 🙂

If you would like to participate, the challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.
