This post was originally planned for the 2nd of August but – since I hadn’t yet taken the photos and I was out of the country – I had to be home before I could write it. Around this time last year, I saw my ‘collection’ from 1990/91 and I decided then that I would post it this year: the twentieth anniversary of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait.

I was just under sixteen years old when I collected these documents.  We were living in London at the time, my father was doing his research at a London University.  I still remember the day of the invasion.  I woke up hearing the news on the TV, and it was too early in the morning for TV to be on in the first place.   It was the weather and I wondered what was going on…  when my father told me that Kuwait was ‘gone!’ and that ‘we’re praying for her return’.  I didn’t understand how a place could go… Where to?

After some time off from business travel, there is no escaping it… It’s time to play catch-up with work starting with a visit to the head office in France.  It’s been great having some free time with the family and, thinking of my flight early tomorrow morning, I miss them already.  So we’re off to play on bikes and onto a nice evening meal.

The shot of the Wataniya plane was taken back in March when I was shooting the MotoCross event.

 

We are in London and the children had their first visit to Hamleys.  They’re not the only ones who get toys – This is my first post using the new Nikon D300… A little more complicated than I had imagined.
