I spent almost three hours photographing Kuwait City from Al Hamra Tower yesterday. This magnificent building took me to the highest point in Kuwait on the 74th floor – which I’m told is about 400m high.  I will go through the 300 photos I took with my Nikon over the next few days, and will post the full story with better quality images.  For now, please enjoy this time lapse attempt.  I used a Canon G11 and held it in place, on the scaffolding, using a Gorilla Pod.  The intervals were not regular and I know I missed some of the interesting bits, but I hope it gives you an idea of the elevation and views.  More images soon…

” 1848 is historically famous for the wave of revolutions that swept Europe and the world, starting in France. They significantly altered the political and philosophical landscape and had major ramifications throughout the rest of the century .”

This is what Wikipedia says about the year 1848.  Well… 48 years ago, Kuwait started a new chapter in her history.  Going back 18 years on the 26th, an “altered” history was changed back to the right course.

I’ve timed this post to appear at 18:48 to the 24th.  At that time, I shall be on my way home in time for the holidays.

Happy Independence and Liberation Days Kuwait. 

May god bless this country and everyone who calls it home.

It was a clear night and while I always try to get a window seat on the right hand side, I couldn’t check-in online for this KLM flight from Muscat.  I couldn’t choose my seat and this was the result!  I know it’s not the sharpest image, but I had to share this great view.  

Kuwait City’s skyline is changing by the day.  So many projects in a relatively small concentrated area. Many of the new buildings have a little more inspiration behind them than the old usual peach/beige cubes. My favorite is Al Hamra.

It’s Liberation Day!

I was hoping to take a photo to commemorate this day but instead (being lazy) I decided to photoshop an older photograph to make the Kuwait flag with the traffic colours.

Happy Independence & Liberation. May god always bless Kuwait and everyone in it.
