This is my first attempt in a local photography competition.  I’ve tried a couple of times online (National Geographic and British Airways’ HighLife magazine) but this time I had to provide prints, which somehow made it feel more real.  I read about the competition on Mathai’s blog some time ago.  The deadline is tomorrow, so if you’re interested you will need to hurry up.

I’ve been meaning to test my new macro lens for a while now.  The dusty weather last week didn’t help with shooting flowers.  I want my first flower post to be from our garden.  I took a couple of test shots, of flower petals and an ugly fly, holding the camera by hand.  The results were fantastic.

I’ve been away for a few days and a little too busy to post.  I have however been taking photos; and I should be able to play catch-up during the forthcoming five-day holiday.  The posts will include photos from the Special Forces event at Kuwait Towers last Saturday, some shots of (and from) the new A380, and a postcard from Hamburg  where I am today.

For this post, I wanted a photo that symbolised a break/pause.  I was inspired by the silly title, and the word ‘Gap’ made the choice obvious.  If you haven’t yet guessed it, it’s a close up of my jeans.  I used a Canon G11 on a macro setting. I’m impressed with what this little camera can do.  I can’t wait to buy a macro lens for my Nikon, which I hope to do in the summer.

Have a wonderful break.

As terrible as it sounds, I am pleased that – starting tomorrow – I can have the only thing I miss in Ramadan: a good coffee in the morning.  I haven’t had time to take a photograph for Eid.  I do hope that you like this close up of a Habiscus flower.   The shot was taken in April this year at my mother’s garden.

Eid Mubarak to you and your loved ones.  I hope all your prayers are answered.

تقبل الله طاعتكم و عيدكم مبارك
