My travel has increased dramatically this month and I just don’t have any spare time.  I was in Bahrain and Saudi last week, Qatar and Dubai this week, and finally France and Germany next week.  March should be a little lighter.

I was going through our photos and found this one.  I took it back in 2006, when Yousef was just over two.  I had been trying out a new lens in the garden as Yousef watched from the doorway.  When I realised I had the keys in my pocket, I asked him to close the door.  He hesitated, as that would have left him alone inside… His confusion created a wonderful natural expression – which I had to capture.  As mean as it was to do, I’m so glad I did it.

I came across this spider by chance… The light and  colours offered the perfect studio – and it remained reasonably still for some time.  I cropped the full image to show more of the details.

Not many people can guess correctly where I took this photograph.  Most seem to think it’s South Asia somerhere.  In fact I took it in Woking Surrey.  This was the closest mosque to the office.  It also happens to be the Europe’s first purpose-built mosque – outside of Muslim Spain.  Read its full history here.
