20th August 2014 – Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The heat and humidity have begun to take its toll on me, Dry winds, blowing sand and visions of a warm bed. A morning walk to a museum was not how I wanted to start, but I’ve set the tone, and my legs take me to where they are led.
Whenever I click with a wide-angle lens, I love to use a warming filter. This gives the pictures a little orangish look, but I totally love that look. In Dubai, I find out, that I will never be needing a warming filter.
The whole town has a very orange glow around it. The sun blazes upon you in August, which incidentally happens to be the hottest month here. There are sand flecks flying everywhere, and even the walls are in colours of Sand. I moved my filter to the end of my backpack already.
I slept at a backpacker hostel last, which incidentally happened to be very close to the Dubai museum. I am not a huge fan of museums, but the proximity was a lead-on. So, I paid the 6 Dirhams and went into the museum, spending the next 2 hours there.
The things I do, to get some air-conditioning.
