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!
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!
This year’s Middle East Film and Comic Convention (MEFCC, in short) had a star-studded line-up of celebrities and experts from the comic industry. People actually queued up and paid to get autographs or selfies with their favourites. On the other hand, media representatives, including yours truly, had an exclusive interactive session with all these people. Here are a few shots from the event!
The list featured heavyweights including:
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (I didn’t know who he was till I met him; I don’t watch the show – Game of Thrones / Jamie Lannister ring any bells?)
Christopher Lloyd (Back to the future)
Randy Orton (WWE)
Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: Sarah Connor)
Nick Frost (Shaun of the dead)
Veronica Taylor (voice artist extraordinaire – April from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
Max Landis (Victor Frankenstein)
Darryl McDaniels (a.k.a. Run DMC)
Stan Lee (last, but certainly not the least, who made an appearance over a live video stream – creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men)
