Photography, a legal high, an addiction.

With photography, you have the power to freeze time and tell a story.
The world may move on, your memories may even fade with time, but your image, your precious photograph is in a sense, immortal.

So put down that remote and pick up your DSLR; it's time to step out of your air-conditioned Dubai apartment and enjoy the sights in your area.
What's great about photography is that it literally compels you to get out there and explore your town and region.
For me the greatest part of photography is its accompanying sense of adventure and a chance to see things anew.
