Weekly Photo Challenge: Repurpose

img_20160922_201501_processed.jpg

Dreamcatchers have a very special place in native American cultures, supposedly to filter out bad dreams and letting only the good ones pass. A dreamcatcher is traditionally made with repurposed items including willow hoops, strings, beads, feathers and other items considered sacred by the natives.

For this week’s Repurpose challenge, I couldn’t think of anything that personifies the notion better. Enjoy!

Note: originally taken from my phone, this photo was later touched up using the Prisma app.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Light and colors – these two make or break the ambience for me.

This photo was taken today at Dubai Mall’s “The Village” and converted into HDR using Photomatic for a surreal effect.

I’m adding a few more for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

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: Curve

Tornado

This photo was one of my first ever experiments in light painting and whenever I look at it, I find myself lost in these colorful curves.

Taken using a Nikon D7000 without a tripod using a 105mm macro lens. In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

DSC_4177

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

DSC_1850

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!
