Zeita ce te-ai cuibarit in sanul meu
Si mi-ai luat inima
Tu imi hranesti fiinta
Ma-ai modelat intr-un nebun de dragoste.
Tu definesti frumosul…
Si soarele se rusineaza de stralucirea ta…
De sclipirea pasiunii si vietii
Din ochii tai de diamante negre
Faurite din eterna fericire.
Starnesti furtuna infinitelor placeri,
Rascolesti adancuri de neant
Si scoti la suprafata ireale simtiri.
Traffic jams on Qatar National Day – City Center shopping mall
I hope the poor image quality (had to shoot trough couple of centimetres of dirty glass on the 55th floor – handheld) doesn’t take much away from this amazing fireworks show on Qatar National Day ’12

I captured this image during a photo project I was working on in a cement factory. I was blown away by the beauty of the light coming trough those dirty and dusty ceiling windows . Just imagine I was up to my knees in dust and I was doing my best to keep it away from my equipment when I got stunned by this view. I tried to capture an image that can describe what I felt. Hope you enjoy it.
Another two takes on Doha’s Skyline. While first one is eye-pleasing with amazing colours,the second one stays more true(in my opinion) to the beautiful ever-changing image and essence of this beautiful city and country. Despite all the negatives like an enslaving sponsorship system that is taken advantage of by still nomad minded company owners (yes…they are few of them left in existence..despite the progress) you can not overlook the good parts…the ambition of a young nation of catching up to speed with the rest of the world and even going way ahead comparing with many of its global competitors . Despite having a high cost to pay, financially and socially speaking, for the progress they made in the last ten years or so…this little country in the Persian Gulf has managed pretty well so far to blend in the old with the new , traditional views with secular views (those nomad minded enslaving individuals make an exception to this…and there are promises that the sponsorship system will be tweaked a bit to step into the 21St century). Anyway sheer perfection exists only in our dreams…therefore I can say it loud that I really enjoy this little corner of “fusion civilization”.
It is all about what we want to see or how profound is our view. And so often we forget about the detail, the essence and we label everything based on the superficial.
This seemingly ugly small desert plant, when looked at in detail and from a different point of view it becomes stunningly beautiful.
