Al Kout meat market. 
One of my Portrait 'training' sessions there.
Folks are very cooperative ;)
The lighting sucks, but such is Life ;)

They all got a small print a week later and were pretty happy =)

The purpose of art is not a rarefied,
intellectual distillate - it is Life,
intensified, brilliant Life

Beauty in a gloomy day

I've always loved rain and misty days.
Since being in the Middle East on and off for 3 years I enjoy them even more.

Of course they can get annoying for photo ops or just get you down when it lasts too long.

I still love it though. How about you: Sunshine or rain / Summer or winter?

365 - 100 / Bliss

Wishing you a wonderful day

Wishing you a wonderful day

Today is decision day. 
The weather is helping along with being dusty (but the still dust which I prefer,...) and my back is stiff, but at least no headache (yet). ;-)

For now, I'll just remember the good time in Germany and keep my spirits up

365 - 099 / A model world

Workshop, Week 5 - Colours

This week was quite hard for me.
Colours at this time of the year are slightly hard to come by.
Yes, we have blue skies out there, but that's about it.
The sun bleaches out everything. Sunsets and Sunrises are pretty much non existent thanks to a lot of haze.
I had to resort to a few things I found inside.
And on some I had to play heavily with the colours, so please excuse the noise.
I just try to give some examples.
;)
