Photograph of a street scene of a beige older Mercedes in front of a green building surrounded by green trees.

My city, Phoenix

With the Phoenix Suns playing in the NBA Finals this week. And me having turned into a Suns fan, I thought it would be appropriate to theme this week’s photos around my current home—Phoenix. I never imagined myself living in a city. Always thought I […]

Photograph of an empty courtyard in Bahrain with an abandoned shopping cart in the foreground.

Looking like an unfinished scene

In the final few weeks of living in Bahrain, I finally checked out the Pearling Path in Muharraq. It’s a historical trail in Muharraq that takes visitors on a journey from the seashore to heart of Muharraq—the journey that pearls used to go on when […]

Photograph of an empty alley in a souq/market in Bahrain where all the market stalls are closed

Sunday is Monday

In Bahrain, the working week starts on a Monday. But while living there, I still worked Monday-Friday. On Sundays, Muharraq souq was always empty. Friday or Saturday mornings, this scene would look very different. But mid-morning on a Sunday—empty (basically). I say basically because you […]

Photograph of an empty alley way.

Night glow

Photos of night time scenes can be surprisingly colourful. With everything being so devoid of light, the little snatches of colour that appear feel more amplified. The street lamps on this empty alley in Malaga cast such a beautiful orange colour on the more reflective […]

Photograph of an empty narrow pedestrian lane at night.

In between places

I’ve been on a bit of a tear with my Lightroom catalog. Tagging, scoring, rating, and categorising my entire catalog of around 8,000 photos because I haven’t been able to go out to take many new photos. In doing so, I’ve come across certain themes […]

Photograph of three colourful buildings. One yellow, another pink, and another white. Taken in Beirut, Lebnon.

All the colours of the rainbow

Closing out this week of photos with another from Beirut. Can anyone else tell me where you’d see a scene like this—a yellow, pink, and white building, all in completely different styles. With one having actual palm trees growing in the balconies. The palm tree-adorned […]

Photograph of apartment buildings fading into the distance during a dust storm.

The day before the night

Taken just three hours before the photo I shared previously, facing a similar direction, you can see what a fairly light dust storm (or Haboob) looks like in Bahrain. The buildings fade into the distance. The colour palette is totally muted. Even those almost bright […]

Photograph of night scene with a building in the foreground and red lit sky in the background

I call this one the cylon

It shouldn’t be too hard to understand why I call this photo “the cylon”. If you don’t get it, let me Google that for you. When the dust rolled in, in Bahrain, by the time the sunset it’d usually be rolling out. And then at […]

Photograph of a group of different types of buildings in Boston

This is real

This photograph does not look real. Every time I see it, there’s something about it that looks completely artificial. These types of buildings shouldn’t be mixed together like this, should they? I absolutely love walking around this part of Boston for this reason. The mish […]
