I have had family visiting this past week. Instead of it limiting my creative opportunities, I have taken it as an opportunity to practice some more with my camera. Showing them around the sites of the UAE has opened a lot of creative doors and allowed me more time behind the viewfinder. I bring my camera everywhere we go and see it as compositional opportunities, even if I have been there before! It depends on what you frame your interest by… lately for me it is strong composition, texture, and pattern. Here is a highlight of that trial and practice experience…
