While walking on the City Wall of Xi'an I noticed that there were quite a few groups doing communal activities. Such as gymnastic exercises as you can see above. However, playing music and singing is also very popular. In the evening, on the squares of Xi'an, you will find a large number of groups dancing. I have been told that to join a group you have to come every evening. And each group comes early to make sure that have a nice spot on the square. It was shame that it was too dark... continue reading
When I moved from Dubai in Nahyan Camp quarter of Abu Dhabi I was happy not to drive to the office 2 hour daily - 1 in each direction, and I was lucky because I was living in Marina Dubai (at exit of the city) and working in Tourist club area Abu Dhabi (also terminal part of the city when you pass through Saadiyat Island).The main landmark for describing location of my new home in Abu Dhabi is behind a row of chocolate shops, that are located across the Moroour road from the bus station near... continue reading

Concept photography is much harder than object photography. Or at least it is for me. It is easy for me to see a hot dog or some exotic salt and think WOW! That, I should shoot right now, and go get my camera (if it isn’t sitting right next to me.)On the other hand…when I really need to work my brain and my skills, I try the concept exercise.The concept exercise is a great one to get you thinking from another part of your brain and to expand your portfolio.Go down the list and pick... continue reading
If I asked you, as a photographer what is your most important piece of equipment? The one thing you could not do without, what would your answer be?Your camera, lenses, tripod, laptop, assistant, car? It is not really any of these things. I’m guessing that you would completely miss the number one thing.You.As photographers we take a lot of risks climbing out on limbs, scurrying down a dear trail on the side of a cliff hundreds of feet above the river with all our equipment trying to... continue reading

Joined a Gym recently. The idea was to keep myself fit. Some observations that I found at the Gym were that people tend to get their mobile phones along with them and are busy attending phones than doing their work out. I feel keeping their phones at home for an hour would be more appropriate. (for them as well as others)Then there are some who take the elevator to go to the second or third floor to attend the Gym. I mean if you are going for a workout, why not use the staircase ? (adds to... continue reading
