This was the 50th post (Day 50) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.
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.
