Ramadan Kareem | Abu Dhabi Photographer

Ramadan has started here in Abu Dhabi (for those reading from abroad Ramadan doesn’t necessarily start on the same day in all countries). This is my 3rd ramadan here and I have been soooo looking forward to it.  I’ve got to admit, the first one I found a real drag because we’d just arrived and had so much stuff to sort out and everything took so long, but now I can’t wait for that month where the pace of life slows down, when everyone is more contemplative, and whether you’re muslim or not, there’s a special spirituality about the month – oh and the special Ramadan food of course!!

In celebration of the Holy month I’m going to run a special Ramadan promotion which I’ll announce tomorrow here on the blog… so watch this space…. 

For now I’ll leave you with one of my favourite images from Ramadan last year – snapped with my point and shoot camera through the car windscreen as we drove to meet friends for Iftar (breaking of the fast) one evening. (I know it’s a shame about the lamp posts and aerials, but I just love the dusty Middle East feel of the image all the same!)ramadan

Ramadan Kareem to you all, Kirsty x

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
