Dhow Laborer

Dubai Creek – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

You see these workers on the dhows every day loading everything from vegetables and fruit, clothes, vehicle spares, cars, to electrical equipment, into the boats.  They toil in the sun or in pitch-black, cramped conditions below-deck.  And then make their way up and down Dubai Creek, and once the boat is full, it’s off — loading and unloading in several countries around the Middle East before it reaches its destination in Iran, East Africa, Pakistan or India.

 

Wrapped in Clouds

The clouds hovered and clung to the massive outcrops of rocks, or moraines, in Milford Sound, as we traversed the waters of Fjordland National Park in New Zealand.

 

 

 

Eye to Eye

New York Street Photography-3

Neglecting to remain on your side of the bridge is life threatening!  Of course, it’s very easy to veer to the ‘wrong’ side of the Brooklyn Bridge walk-way.  Sometimes you encounter a biker who is just bigger than life and you know that you and your camera are treading on very dangerous (wrong-way) ground.

This waterfront park along the East River in New York City provides unique, street photography opportunities.

Sea Gulls

Sea Gulls

They’re not always boisterous and annoying.  When they’re absent from the beach, I miss their squawks, their begging for food and I miss seeing their synchronized flights over the ocean.  And then they rest quietly on the sand in a giant group, all facing in the same direction.  I like that; but it doesn’t last long.

Sydney Reflections

Reflections of Sydney

Although Sydney is best known for its harbourfront and hubs of waterside life, the city’s ever evolving skyscrapers, provide spectacular skyline views.  Beautiful abstract compositions on glass and chrome were naturally enhanced by warm, golden hour light. Yep, I was lucky that night!

Sharing the Boardwalk

I’m pretty sure I missed the “Yield” sign!
