Weekly Photo Challenge: Names

sherlock-holmes

For those of us who find solace in fiction, Sherlock Holmes is a very familiar name. I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant named after him in the heart of London. Absolutely beautiful!

Photowalk @ Dubai Design District’s #meetd3 Event

Dubai design district recently hosted their open-to-public meetd3 event a couple of weeks back, and I had the privilege of (ab)using my camera to my heart’s content. With interactive installations by extraordinary artists and plenty of activities for adults and kids alike, it was a must-attend event; I blew my first ever glass globe thingy and it was amazing.

Here’s a glimpse of meetd3 and the Dubai Design District through my lens. Enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

You start your new year, hoping that you’d write more frequently than you did last year. Unfortunately for me, these resolutions are just that; resolutions.

Even though I did my last challenge quite a while back, I do check out the weekly subscription email I receive quite regularly. This week’s challenge spoke to me, prompted me to come out of hibernation and pick up where I left off on this path. I call this one ‘The Road to Nowhere’, taken in 2013 on my one-day road trip to London.

I close my year with the same resolutions again; to write more, to explore more, to share more. Let’s see if it sticks this time!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

Love is, inherently, a pure emotion. One of the purest forms of love is between a human and an animal, as this relationship is not bound by expectations. 

This right here is my interpretation of this week’s challenge – the pure bond between a kind lady and a lechwe; enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare

Spare a thought to the infinite space around us and the rarity of our existence. There is no known extraterrestrial life, intelligent or otherwise; we are but a speck of dust in this ever-expanding cosmos. Never will this thought hit you harder than when you’re flying thousands of feet above sea-level. Perspective changes everything; it humbles you like nothing else can.

These photos were taken while flying over Pakistan, Iran, UAE, Birmingham, and other places I can’t even remember. Enjoy!

Metamorphosis

Crawling you may be right now
But hold your head up high
It’s really caterpillars that
Turn into butterflies
