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.

 

Amelia Island

Moody-Island

She’s feeling a little ‘moody’ today.  But you know what they say about a bad day at the beach . . .

Tucked in for the Night

Amelia Island Low tide provided a peaceful, secure setting for this fishing boat docked on Amelia Island.  The pelicans were my companions as we watched as the sun set.

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.

My First Trip to the Zoo

Doesn’t everyone wear a pink safari hat when visiting the zoo?

She’s Got it Right!

Some people just know how to stay cool and comfortable while checking email on the beach.  I just wanted to continue my early morning walk!  I like the sound of the surf more than the ring-tones and message notifications on my phone.
