Dubai March 2013


After the cold of Montreal, a quick 22 hr turnaround in the UK, got me to the UAE and namely Dubai. I used to work here a lot, and my wife used to live here, but this was our first “holiday” there. We stayed with some friends, and had a great time and i got some needed sun. Our main day out was a trip to the newly crowned “Worlds Tallest Building” the Burj Khalifa. This was the day to take the real camera and get some snaps. So, part 3 of the quick Mrben09 Travel series for spring 2013. Click any photo to enlarge.

Brora Oct 2012


Just a quick one purely for the photos. I went to the North of Scotland this weekend for a family wedding and a good time was had by all. The weather for this time of year was amazing, although a bit windy. when its like this there is no better scenery on this plantet. Heres a few snaps i got. Some from the DLR, some, the compact, but the best beach ones were from an iphone 3GS ! Never dismiss a camera just the opportunity. Click to see properly. Enjoy.
