Photograph of the closeup of the face of a beige building with 4 green tinted windows

Inward facing

You know, I don’t have many words for this image. It was just a very pleasing scene that I saw while getting some fresh air on the rooftop of the apartment building I used to live in while in Bahrain. Funny—I captured a lot of […]

Photograph of the rooftops of villas in Bahrain.

The favourite view

On the one hand, it’s hard not to love a sea view. Which was actually the view through another set of windows from this same apartment. But this view—the rooftops of villa upon villa—was my favourite from this apartment. Every villa looking a little bit […]

Photograph of multiple buildings completely filling the frame.

Penned in

One of my favourite ways to take photos is to completely fill the frame. (And also, completely oppositely—capturing images where there’s a lot of negative space. I like the extremes!) Totally filling the frame often asks the viewer of the image to spend just a […]

Photograph of a group of buildings in downtown Phoenix.

The Phoenix version

May have unintentionally and subconciously recreated this image taken in Boston here. There are some similar elements, but the perspective and angle on this image is much less dramatic than the one taken of a similar feeling skyline in Boston. I actually remember taking this […]

Photograph of Phoenix's Westward Ho, surrounded by silhouetted tree branches

An icon on downtown Phoenix’s skyline, the Westward Ho was initially a hotel when it opened back in 1928. It held the title as the tallest building in Phoenix for over 30 years. Now it’s a subsidized housing complex. And apparently haunted. There are few […]

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 […]
