An Afternoon on the Streets of Old Dubai

An Afternoon on the Streets of Old Dubai

Between my workshops and my flight back home, I had a free day in Dubai. The night before I met two great guys who invited me to join them for a couple of hours doing some street photography in the old part of Dubai. We ended up mostly just strolling and chatting and squeezed in some pictures too.

I really enjoyed this day and I have to thank my new friends for this. Ian has this great talent to connect to people which makes you feel right at home and opens up doors and conversations with all kinds of people in the street. Dubai based photographer Catalin was the best host and guide Ian and I could wish for. I’ve learned a lot about Dubai and his culture in a single afternoon. We ended the day with an amazing barbecue in Catalin and his lovely girlfriend Anna’s backyard. The perfect end to an amazing week.
