Our pigeons were finally released yesterday. I gave them a month or so to get used to their new home. It seems they know where they are now and they're happy here. They all returned by sunset. It's a great feeling to be able to keep birds without confining them against their will. Because they've been in cages/small areas since birth, their health and feathers have suffered. I hope that with their new freedom and room to spread their wings :) they will get better and better.

I was tidying up my files when I came across this photo. Flying back from Paris (over Germany) I saw this 747 from my window. I managed to catch it before it disappeared into a line of condensation. Photograph taken on 21 01 2008.
I only managed to spend 24 hours in what can only be described as the crazy city. It fealt like all I did was zoom around to try to fit in as much as possible. The postcard photo chosen is therefore very appropriate. I was amazed how little the horn was used by these people. The roads were still noisy - but it was only the more tolerable (and necessary) engine noise.The smiles were many and genuine. People here are very friendly. I will come back one day. Inshallah.
It is so impressive how much the Thai people can fit on a motorbike. I saw a family of 5 on one the other day here in Phuket. The photo is of a man who's converted his into a delivery truck.
It's Liberation Day!
I was hoping to take a photo to commemorate this day but instead (being lazy) I decided to photoshop an older photograph to make the Kuwait flag with the traffic colours.
Happy Independence & Liberation. May god always bless Kuwait and everyone in it.
This is one of my favourite night shots of London. I have a large print of it displayed in my office. The unmistakable colours of Piccadilly Circus and the London bus/taxi create the perfect postcard moment.
It was Ramadan and we were fasting but it was one of the best sporting events I attended in Kuwait. I took my brother and cousin and the evening was wonderful. Good atmosphere, nice weather, some good football (great football by Brazil) and we got to see Pele.I took many photos - mostly bad because I had no tripod. This was one of my lucky shots and I'm really pleased I got it.
I’m in Picadilly Circus. I took my bike on the train into Waterloo and spent the whole day (I mean from 8am to 8pm so the whole day) taking photos of London. The weather was surprisingly helpful.
This photo was a special one because not long from now, we will not see many more of these classic double-decker buses. The Routemaster is slowly but surely disappearing from the streets of the capital :(
Here are some more photographs taken on the same day:
