Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

A candle-lit dinner, hundreds of fairy lights in the garden, a-gazillion stars in the sky above… these all instill an image of calm, beauty, romance in a person.

And trying to capture that feeling in a photo can quite often be daunting, especially if you are trying to, for example, photograph the stars on a cloudless night.

But sometimes you get it just right, and a photo can really bring out the atmosphere and character of a place or moment in time – the ambience of that photograph.

I’ve put together a few different types of photos and not just gone for the lighting effect… I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂

And the last one I had to throw in for good measure – I love the relaxed feeling that you get from looking at this dog having a snooze in the afternoon sun 🙂 ❤


Weekly Photo Challenge: Anticipation

When I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge, I initially decided that I wasn’t going to take part… purely because I knew it would take me aaaaaagges to scour through my thousands of archived photos (I still really need to get my stuff sorted on Flickr or such!) and I don’t quite have the time for that.

But, then a friend messaged me during the week wanting to do something out of the house. So, after a bit of searching the internet on ideas of what to do around Dubai during the festive season that doesn’t involve eating (the reason why will be revealed at the end of this week), I found a Christmas market that we could visit. Now if that’s not anticipation for next week, then I don’t know what is 😉

I hope you enjoy the photos I had great fun taking! 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance

I had so much fun going through my photos for this week’s challenge on Dance! The photos all brought back memories of such great times… it was hard to decide which photos to choose because some of the albums contained many, many options that I could choose from!

I’ve whittled my choice down to just a select few that I think are the most fun photos – I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂
