A photograph of a collection of high rise buildings at certain points of construction.

Bahrain in a nutshell

This image is Bahrain, for me. It’s constantly under construction. There’s something new coming soon. And what was once new not so long ago, is left in the wake of what’s to come. And that was true for so many things. Looking back, I guess […]

A photograph of a collection of buildings in Beirut.

Beirut, some of my favourite facades

Hands down, Beirut has the most beautiful building facades I’ve seen. They’re a mishmash of old, new, high-rise, offices, apartments. Balconies overflowing with all sorts. Not to mention actual palm trees growing off of balconies and rooftops many, many floors above the ground floor. And […]

2020 in photos

Four hundred and seventy two photos. Surprised even myself going through my Lightroom catalog. For a year that was spent mostly indoors, I’m a little bit impressed with myself. (And that number’s going to go up with some last-week-of-the-year images.) The collective universe categorised 2020 […]

My obsession with the saguaro

They’re everywhere. I’m not exaggerating. Maybe just a little bit. It’s hard not to point out every single saguaro cactus you see, if you’ve never been to Arizona and you visit for the first time. Though, over a year living here, and I’m still obsessed. […]

A shadowy stay-at-home story (part 2)

This isn’t as sinister as the title may suggest. The stifling of creativity I mentioned before took me down some “dark” paths. I kept hunting for moments in time, shadows, light, and texture—those things that I miss on my day-to-day of just being at home. […]

A stay-at-home story (part 1)

For the last six months, my world has been the world enclosed in the walls that I live in. Like almost everyone in the world. It’s my gym, my cinema, my bar, and my occasional restaurant. I would have added “it’s my office,” but my […]

Hello there, from Manama souq

Photo 10/52 | Hello there

Waiting in a tiny tailor’s shop in Manama souq. The guy cleaning in the sandwich shop across the way couldn’t help but stare. It’s common for folks to simply stare, in Bahrain. All you can do is look back, smile, pick up your camera, and […]

Bourbon Street

Photo 9/52 | Bourbon Street

Probably not how I’ll remember the few days I spent in New Orleans, but one of the more memorable images of that trip. Spent a day wandering around the city, pointedly avoiding Bourbon Street. But curiosity got the better of me. Suffice to say, a […]

Ancient, old, and new

February 2019 | Beirut, Lebanon

Ancient, old, and new all in one single view. Beirut’s skyline is like no other city I’ve visited. You do yourself a disservice if you don’t spend the entire time looking up. (Though that may also mean you step in one or two dog turds!) […]
