Gone Fishing

October 9th, 2009

Yay! I’m gonna be travelling for a much needed break for some two weeks or so.

My access to the ‘net may be sporadic at best, so I doubt I’ll be able to post any new stuff until after my return.

I look forward to having loads of pictures to share with you when I get back (including some underwater shots).

Until then, I leave you with this picture I took in the Abu Dhabi Airport’s Terminal 1. I love this building. I think it’s brilliantly designed. It may be a relic of the 70s to some, but to me it’s a sign I’m home. It just oozes so much character – making the only airport in the world I’ve been to (and I’ve been to a fair few) where I’m always instantly at ease. The new one may be all fancy and glitzy, but it feels somewhat generic. But this terminal well… it’s unique. Am I just nostalgic? Perhaps. All I know is, I’d rather keep flying out of it and returning to it, and I’ll be very very sorry to see it go if they ever decide to scrap it (please don’t!).

Ye Olde Airport

I also leave you with a link to some 80 awesome high-speed shots: here.

Catch you when I get back! Ta!

It seems the FollowSite subscriptions (through the “Subscribe/Follow” button at the bottom of each post) are proving rather unrealiable and many of you have told me that you’re not recieving updates whenever there’s a new post.

Given this problem, I’ll be removing the FollowSite application from the blog in the coming day or two to give a chance for you to switch over to the infinitely more reliable Feedburner subscription options (via both RSS and email) which you can find in the right-hand column.

Should you like, you can find out more about RSS here.

Do let me know if you continue to have problems with the subscriptions. Cheers!

The Wandering Photographer

August 19th, 2009

Today is my good friend Dan’s birthday!

Soon, Dan is about to begin a new chapter in a rather well-lived life. After much soul-searching, he has decided to leave the UAE to travel the world hunting for the light. He has decided to combine his travel dreams with a jump into the world of professional photography. And more power to him.

He is passionate, dedicated to his art, has a great eye and a thirst for new experiences.

And he has a number of projects up his sleeve.

I dare say he’ll go far.

That said, it saddens me to see him go. I’m going to miss him. But I’m very proud of him for having the faith to make the leap where many others in his position otherwise wouldn’t, and for having the courage and conviction to follow his dreams.

In view of his imminent departure, he’s set up a photo blog on which you can track his adventures. Check it out here.

You can also see Dan’s fantastic work on his website. And for a behind-the-scenes look at some of his work, check here.

On that note, I’m off to celebrate with Dan.

Happy birthday buddy!
