Alleys to get lost down

Another one from Manama souq in Bahrain. Probably one of the last photos I took of the souq before moving to the US. And probably one of my most visited parts of souq. For those last couple of weeks in Bahrain at least. You see, […]

Surrounded

Sometimes, I’m in the right place at the right time. To be honest, that’s how most of my photography actually goes. Rarely do I plan to go out specifically for photography. Which I need to change—when summer’s over. These two people were totally mesmerised by […]

My claim to fame

Do you remember Google+? I can hear some laughs and snorts just writing that question. I was one of those poor saps who actually devoted their time to building out their presence on that platform. For real. 90% of what I shared there was my […]

The city for me

Photo of the facade of residential buildings in Bahrain.

Just look up

That’s all you have to do. Look up and find another view. Living in Bahrain, with all of the high-rise apartment blocks and buildings, I did see something different every time I looked up. And that view changed with the time of day. In the […]

Sunset in a mining town

Clifton, Arizona. A tiny little town with a population of around 3,700. Just a stop along the way—or more accurately—the start of a fun “little” drive. An interesting, and dare I say it, eye-opening town for this Brit who’s really not seen a lot of […]
