Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

Like the host of this week’s photo challenge, I love achieving the bokeh effect when I shoot small subjects like flowers. I am not a fan of putting a subject at the center of the image. I usually apply the rule of thirds. Related Blog Posts Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds at dailypost.wordpress.com Weekly Photo Challenge:…

A Gustatory New Year At Tokyo Restaurant

Christmas or New Year is something I never celebrated since I got to Saudi Arabia in April 2012—until I broke the monotony last 31 December 2014. Out of the blue, I felt the need to go outside the cubbyhole. The first thing that came to mind when I thought of how to celebrate it is…

Urban Spelunking (Second Episode: Earth & Air)

After the upbeat endings of our watching-the-sunrise and swimming experience at Half Moon Bay, we proceeded directly to the city proper to check in at one of the most economical hotel suites in Khobar and to have lunch at the most patronized Filipino restaurant nearby. Thereafter, we headed to our second destination: Cobra Amusement Park….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

On my way to Al Taj International School for a dental check-up on my birthday last 27 September 2013, I passed by the newly constructed tunnel along King Abdul Aziz Road in Riyadh City. My optical organs were ensnared by the lights on the roof crown of the tunnel. I just feasted on their enticing…

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Patterns to Lines

Last Tuesday, September 17, I did sauntering at one of the top shopping centers, Hayat Mall, of the capital city. Never knew the shapes, lines, cool texture, and patterns that my eyes and camera caught while I was resting and quenching my thirst in the kaleidoscopic patio of the mall will be utilized this early for…

Alfresco Dining on The Hill in Ushaiger

Before perambulating the historical village of Ushaiger on that day, we actually laid back at another favorite spot in the place which is simply known as The Hill. It is a picnic spot surrounded by a quickset hedge of two to three meters high. You can also see outhouses, a jungle gym, and a few…

The Exhibit Archive Of Ushaiger

The locals’ massive trachles to preserve their objects of historical and archaeological value are quantified into Al Salem Museum, which is standing on the middle of the village. Getting inside the exhibit archive requires a few silver coins from the old world. I must say 10 riyals is an underprice with the handsome antiques floating…
