About a month ago I got invited by a close friend to join a new group of people on a photo walk. It sounded like the perfect beginning to some new adventures so I hurriedly accepted.
Walk, shoot and share on Instagram seemed to sum up the theme in a nutshell, and that’s precisely what we did. Oh wait, we did converse, have a few laughs and some coffee in between. Nevertheless, it was one heck of a day. It’s always great meeting like-minded people and it's fair to say that I can’t wait for the next time.
Coincidentally the place we choose to take pictures happened to be called ‘The Walk’ at ‘The Wave’ in Muscat. If you haven’t been there yet you most definitely should.  Here’s a few images from a swell day with some really cool folks. A big shout out to all those of you who made it happen and also to Shaina for extending me the invite.

P.S. If you're in Muscat and would like to join us on our next Instawalk feel free to drop me a line. We would love to have you!

18 seconds of calm

Calm is all I seek, and if you can deliver you will be my eternal retreat.

This is what the sea means to me. I'm constantly drawn to it. You may find me at the water’s edge, taking in the views or walking along on the warm wet sand. I long for a steady breeze and the foamy surf. While I could be here forever I intend to capture the mood, the sudden stillness and how it all could be seen as something beautiful. Back behind the camera I go.  

I was inspired to create this image from a previous image I had posted on my Instagram (naushadsaleem) a few weeks ago, which was that of a moody landscape. My intention was to better it, yet also work on my long exposure photography, so with both in mind I gave it a shot. Let me know what you think.
