Sometimes I think I'm a photographer Category

whoop!

So can I claim that I was on the BBC? It may not be a big deal but it was a good picker-upper. Yay!

crash

Yesterday, I took these photos of a terrible car wreck. I debated with myself whether these are considered ‘art’ or not. I did post them on Facebook. But am I being lewd and exploitative by posting them here (or there, for that matter!)? I may be sick, but I find great beauty in this wreckage. […]

water, wine & women

Some more fun with a sister (thanks, Yasmine, you’re a trooper), camera, iPhoto and lots of water. Oh, and my mom’s star of the night, a fitted, red sheet from IKEA.

Exhibition 50/20|The Sultan Gallery

A Night With Yousef at the Avenues

These were taken at an event raising awareness to keep Kuwait clean. The event was organized and headed by Ms. Iqbal Al-Eissa, Jana’s mom. My mom was involved as well so you can say it was a bit of a family affair.

Yasmine, Some Disjointed Mannequins & Me

Last Ramadan, Yasmine and I visited Dar Al-Funoon at the last minute to check out the Noon Collection. Unfortunately, the skirt that Yasmine had seen in the catalog and loved had been sold. But when life gives you lemons, you make lemon merangue pie, or in our case, try on some other lovely outfits and […]

Miti & Me

On January 6 (David Bowie’s birthday), my friend Miti and I embarked on a tour of downtown Kuwait and Sabhan. We started out with a highly ambitious plan to visit the Behbehani Complex (check), the Grand Mosque (we drove by and waved), Mubarakia (check), Kuwait’s Museum of Modern Art (skip) and The Sultan Gallery for […]
