Photograph of a brightly lit scene in an alley way in a souq with a tall stack of colourful plastic bins on the left.

Surrounded, on all sides

Closing my eyes with this image in mind, I can feel the same breeze on my sun on my skin and breeze in my hair from this day. And I can remember the sound of the tarp blowing gently in the winter breeze. That was […]

Photograph of a house covered in graffiti off Roosevelt Row in Phoenix, Arizona.

Covered, head to toe

On 5th Street and Garfield Street, you’ll find this house. It’s covered in graffiti. You can barely see an inch of this house’s original paint colour. I have no idea about the history of this house. Why is it covered in graffiti? Who owns it? […]

People watching at the DBG

Watching how people wander around Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Gardens is almost as interesting as the actual gardens. Almost. It’s fun to see and hear other visitors having the exact same reactions and thoughts you’re having seeing the gardens—look at the SIZE of that saguaro; you […]

An accidental theme

Looking back of this past week’s posts, towards the end of the week, it looks like I stumbled on an accidental theme—images of the backs or sides of strangers. Leaning into that for today’s post. Captured in December 2017 in Bahrain. Taken at what was […]

Missing this

Weaving around plastic baskets, tables piled with kids clothes, and other seemingly random odds and ends. I don’t buy anything. Or very rarely. There’s something about walking around a souk. Even the incredibly quiet Muharraq souq, in Bahrain, on a Sunday afternoon. There isn’t anything […]
