186/365 – Next Stop: Khalid Bin Al Waleed

I haven’t been able to shoot every day lately. The selling/moving of our house in NYS has kept me busier than I wished.

Today is my son’s 24th birthday! I have been busy cooking all day his favorite food for tonight’s dinner.

So I decided to show you a couple of photos shot while at a photography workshop in Dubai.

The first one is from the Khalid Bin Al Waleed metro station and the second one was taken at the Burj Khalifa metro station.

The moment I saw her with her bright red coat, I knew  what I would do with the photo. She was truly popping out, like a breath of fresh air in this underground tunnel. Although the floor of the Lionel-Groulx Metro station makes a good attempt at being cheerful, to me the metro is always  a drab looking place during the winter months.

84/365 – Transport me

I don’t live in a black and white world literally and metaphorically speaking.  I actually love colors, they are very important to me. They lift me up, put a smile on my face, make the world a better place but lately, I am developing a new appreciation for black and white. The same photo can be so different in color or in b&w. Often times now, I make one of each. I find that from color to b&w, a photo’s mood can be altered, even convey a different message/story. In this case, I can’t really decide on my favorite one. I like then both for different reasons.

Here are the two and I am leaving it up to you to decide.
