Eid Mubarak to all my wonderful friends and clients. I hope you all had a blessed and peaceful Ramadan wherever you were and if you were here in Abu Dhabi you have my utmost admiration for fasting when it was 50 degrees C out there.
I’ve mentioned before how I love the quietness and calm that spreads across the city during Ramadan – that I love that we get to spend more time together as a family and my hubby is home earlier. It’s a quiet time for my business too with it being summer and so hot outdoors and that allows me to work on some other things. Every year I challenge myself to a Ramadan photo project (although I never actually got around to posting it last year – oops). This year was simple – after the fun of capturing my family on my iphone for my Project 10 last month – I decided to capture snaps of Ramadan on my iphone too. Sometimes it’s fun to just take photography back to its bare bones – where the things that make a great photo are not your about your settings or your camera, but about choice of subject, use of lighting and composition. So, here are some of the things I found interesting this Ramadan, via my iphone…
I have a real love of patterns and food, so pictures of dates and sweets are the kind of things that make me smile. We also went to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque for iftar as we do every year and every year the building amazes me more. We spent time at the beach where we could hear the prayer call echoing out across the city right as the sun went down.
I hope you all have a wonderful few days with your families. I’ll be up and running and taking bookings again soon (with some changes in my fees due to a change in family circumstances – keep on eye on my Facebook page for more on that).
Eid Mubarak to one and all, Kirsty x
