Project 10 November | Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photographer

My goodness how can we be a 3rd of the way into this project already??? If you’ve not seen the Project 10 before you can read how we got started here. I usually do the project over a day the first week of the month – this month that fell on the week of the Eid holiday here in UAE. Much of the celebrating happens in peoples homes, but people also use it as an excuse to get out and about – we used it as an opportunity to go up to Dubai and do some things on our Dubai wish list!

The day started off gently with some lounging around…

before we set off on the journey… (yes they are the worlds biggest chapatis from the bakery by our home!)

When we got there things didn’t work out as we hoped – some things we wanted to do we couldn’t, but we did manage to get to Ras Al Khor, a wetland site in the middle of Dubai, to see the flamingos (and to check out how crazy big the Burj Khalifa looks compared to the rest of Dubai!).I worked on a Ramsar site back in Hong Kong so I was really excited to see another big city Ramsar site – I have to say, I was a little disappointed – but the kids loved playing with the binoculars and seeing all the birds 🙂

And then we headed down towards the creek to explore some galleries and have a rest and a drink

These girls will take any space and turn it into a dancing stage!!!

We rounded the day off with a trip to the Dubai Mall (the worlds biggest mall no less, and believe me it felt like half the world were in there!!) and dinner at the rainforest cafe, before heading to see the fountains, which we couldn’t see through the crowds!! Ah well, something for us to do another time… and here’s proof that even photographer Mummies break out their pop up flash sometimes, and take the cheesy tourist shot!!!

Now head on over to see what Hope has been up to this November,

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,
