christmas comes early

So I was reading the news on the BBC World website last night and as always I went to the photo section. Immediately my eyes caught the ‘Your Photos’ section. Then I saw ‘Your Pictures of 2013’ subtitled (because it matters to me) ‘A selection of the best readers’ photos’. Immediately my heart sank because […]

david comes to town } day one

I really wish I wrote and posted this on the day itself. I just didn’t have the time to do it. What I document here is a mere fraction of what we did and a tiny memory taken from my newly acquired bank of good feeling and fun.

a visit from a dear friend yields photographic fruit

A dear friend of mine visited me this weekend. David Dobson. David is a professional photographer and amateur side-splitter. The last time I had seen David was in the Cairo American College auditorium where I bid him a warm good-bye. I really liked David in high school. He not only made everyone laugh but you […]

Sometimes I Think I’m a Photographer|Fatima El Hajj Exhibition at the FA Gallery

I had a very busy morning yesterday. It was one of those mornings you feel were worth getting out of bed and driving around town for. Good company, a big jar of assorted eye candy and a healthy dose of cultural adrenaline. After the car show, I drove to the FA Gallery to see Lebanese […]

eve & me

  My brother, Tareq, was over for lunch this afternoon. After we ate I saw him clicking away at his phone. Then he asked me, “Ghadah, do you have a painting of Eve at her computer?” and I said yes. Then he showed me a photo he had taken of me a couple of months […]

Steam

Months and months ago, I was introduced by my friend Tom, to the word steampunk. I instantly fell in love with it. A few weeks ago, my friend SB said that I had the potential to be steampunkish and I disagreed with him, ‘How ridiculous!’. Then this morning I was going through some old photos […]
