Dubai Aquarium: Red water devils

By | United Arab Emirates | One Comment

These red jellyfish looked so calm and graceful, but I remembered the worst pain ever, which I felt, when I got stung years ago in Australia. Yet, behind the glass window of the Dubai aquarium, I could have stood for hours looking at the elegant jellyfish’s movements in the water. Fascinating.

Dubai Desert

The unknown path

I shot this photograph in the desert of Dubai when we were invited to a company dinner in the dessert.

There are times in life, when we have to decide whether to stay on the well known path or to leave it for the unknown new. To me the photograph displays this new path with its lights inviting our curiosity and its endless horizon, not giving a hint of what lies beyond.

Market, Austria

Escaping the everyday life on a saturday market….

By | Austria, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates | 5 Comments

I have always loved to go to any market along my travels. I am curious about what ever I might find there. It is rather an adventure though as I am always worried about my belongings… On top of that, there are usually not many tourist, so people would always shout after me and considered me as their best bargain.

Back home though, there is nothing better than a saturday morning market. Seldom enough I make it there – but when I do so, it is pure joy and pleasure. It is about focussing on the essential basics – those things I miss and question in my job I guess ;-).

Strolling along these markets, surrounded by people who appreciate quality within their basic needs, calms me down. These saturday mornings feel like a meditation or vacation. A very different place to my everyday rushed life. A luxury just a few steps out of my front door.
