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 […]

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. […]

Two years on in Bahrain

Two years on in Bahrain

This past weekend, Saturday May 21st to be exact, marked the two-year anniversary of my move to Bahrain. TWO WHOLE YEARS. The date isn’t in my calendar, so I sort of forgot. I knew the move date was around May in 2014, sometime towards the […]

There was a plan…

There was a plan…

There was a plan. No really. I’d be spending the holiday season with family back in London, with a tiny bit of downtime that I reserved for some 2015 blog summarising and 2016 blog planning. That was the plan. What actually happened was the tiny […]
