The photographer: “Two tourists, dressed as maiko (apprentice geisha) explore Kiyomizudera, the Temple of Pure Waters, in Kyoto. I usually don’t take pictures of tourists playing dress-up, but they were so beautiful! ”

Gateway to hell



Gateway to hell, originally uploaded by hkvam “Námaskarð has very active solfataras (sulphurous mud springs) and fumaroles (steam springs), none of which contain pure water. The mud craters are uncommonly large and are well worthy of the travelers attention, whereas many of the steam craters are drilling holes that have been covered with rocks. There is no vegetation in this high temperature area and the ground is sterile and very acidic due to the effects of the fumes from the mud springs.”
Námaskarð geothermal area, Mývatn, N-Iceland
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm.
ISO 100, f5.6, 1/50

The photographer: “the scene was real; the effect is manipulated.
To achieve this effect I simply duplicated the layer and added a gaussian blur filter, then used a soft eraser in the center to reveal the lower layer. I also used the burn tool around the edges.”

I am NOT the Tourism Board.

I am NOT the Tourism Board., originally uploaded by ahmedzahid.

The photographer: When I was working at Sun Island ( www.villahotels.com/sun/index.htm )
this used to be a favourite spot.
Off limits for the tourists, (because of unloading and other back-house activities) this jetty is bypassed by many, as uninteresting and Ugly.

I find many photo opportunities, of both action and scenery, here.

Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder.”

Ramadan ,The month of fasting

Ramadan ,The month of fasting, originally uploaded by s3ood.

“Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. For more than a billion Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a “month of blessing” marked by prayer, fasting, and charity. Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. Muslims practice sawm, or fasting, for the entire month of Ramadan. This means that they may eat or drink nothing, including water, while the sun shines. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars (duties) of Islam. As with other Islamic duties, all able Muslims take part in sawm from about age twelve. Fasting serves many purposes. While they are hungry and thirsty, Muslims are reminded of the suffering of the poor. Fasting is also an opportunity to practice self-control and to cleanse the body and mind. And in this most sacred month, fasting helps Muslims feel the peace that comes from spiritual devotion as well as kinship with fellow believers.”

People get silly
Back to my childish
