About a month ago I had to make a Still life photo for a local photo competition, I didn’t know what I wanted to make, I don’t do that kind of photography.
But I came up with the idea that I could make some miniature photos. And so I did.
This is not the photo I pick for the competition.
September last year, I bought My first car since 1995, it’s a Volvo Amazon from 1967, a car that I have always dreamed of owning but never thought that I would, So I’m a really happy guy right now.
At the moment the car is at My parents place, parked safe and dry for the winter. I’m bringing it back as soon as spring is here.
This is Bnsamrah, an arab I meet in a desert in United Arab Emirates.
I walked in to this desert area through this broken fence, after about an hour this Toyota F1 came roaring up the sand dune I was standing on, I stopped right next to me and out stepped this cool looking arab guy.
He asked me what I was doing there, I told him that I was just walking around making some photos of the beautiful place, He that I wasn’t allowed to walk around in here, it was private property. I asked if it was ok for me to make some photos in here as long as I didn’t break anything, He had to ask his boss about that, after around 45 min. he finally got a go from his boss – who in the meantime got a go from his boss – that it was ok for me to been in there.
Now that anything was ok, Bnsamrah said get in, it’s to hot to walk around here, I’ll show you around a bit. So I got in to he’s car and we drove around for a couple of hours, visiting a dates plantation among other things, I had a lot of fun driving around seeing all sorts of things.
I also found out the reason for him driving around here, they have this big problem with people in the area dumping garbage in the desert, and his job is to stop them, and keep them out of the place.
I made the photo while he was on the phone with his boss.
There are many of these small improvised restaurants in Mexico, they normally only serve one kind of food, but that’s not a bad thing, course that one dish is likely to be a very well cooked ,tasty and cheap one. so if you’re in Mexico – or some other country for that matter – and stumble upon one of these restaurants, don’t hesitate just sit down and get ready for a culinary experience.
I’ve done it many times, and never gotten sick afterwards, ass long ass the food is cooked, fried or otherwise heated, you should be safe.
