The Ladies & the Gelato

November 23rd, 2010

I’ve been a little busy of late, and not had much time to prepare any posts. Am working towards fixing that, so please bear with me!

I made this shot in Florence, Italy, just before I headed up the hill to the Piazzale Michelangelo. These three German ladies were sitting outside a tiny gelateria, enjoying the sun and the first-class Italian gelato. I love the texture of the wall behind them.

On another note, check out the following:

Graffiti Town – Part V

November 12th, 2010

This is the final (and long overdue) part in the five-part series on graffiti, wall art and tagging in Brussels, Belgium, and Barcelona, Spain. You can check out parts 1 through 4 here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

Barcelona is so graffiti-mad that you can even find cool post cards of the wall art all over town.

Seen from Park Guell looking out over Barcelona.

I’d love to know how they got all the way up the wall…

Voom-voom!

On a different note, some very different and amazing stuff lined up:

More coming soon!

UAE National Day!

December 2nd, 2009

I think this deserves it’s own post. 🙂

Today the UAE has completed 38 revolutions around the sun since their formation under the guidance of the late HH Sh. Zayed Al Nahyan.

So in the spirit of celebration, I leave you with two links to awesome HDR shots of fireworks taken by Trey Ratcliff, who runs one of my favourite travel photography blogs, the very excellent Stuck in Customs.

So here they are: a shot of fireworks in a lightning storm; and a shot of fireworks exploding inside a cloud.

Speaking of fireworks – today at around 8:30pm the world’s largest and record breaking fireworks display is expected to light up the night sky in Abu Dhabi. They will be visible along the Abu Dhabi Corniche and across the Emirates Palace Marina. Don’t miss it if you can make it (I’m certainly hoping to)!

Also, don’t miss the public showing at the Emirates Palace of an original painting of HH Sh. Zayed by Roland Van Merbeck. The work will be on display until December 4, 2009.

For more information on the National Day celebrations, see here.

Happy National Day every one!
