I love to chase light. So when it comes to low light photography, I don’t mind if the picture is less sharp, full of grains, a bit blurry; I just want to capture the moments. So here, don’t expect pretty pictures.

You Wouldn’t Believe These Pictures Are From UAE

Unseen UAE : Guess The Place


When you hear “UAE”, the first thing that comes to your mind would be ‘Dubai’ and the next word you associated with it would be ‘luxury’. Some of you might prefer to differ with my view. But that is just my view.

So here I would like to take you to some unseen UAE visuals.

Anil [U.P., India] Now at UAE

This guy makes and sells Samosas on his bicycle. As I was walking aimlessly, met this guy. In fact he stopped seeing someone walking with a camera, and wanted a picture taken. The picture was taken, conversations were exchanged. And we were about to leave. Then this guy stopped after a few meters and returned to give me a free samosa! I am getting lessons on kindness from totally unexpected places for sure.

Now the kind man is the Samosa seller.
