Eid in RAK

2 Comments

It was a strange kind of Eid Holidays this year. Every year we do plan something in advance for the long weekend that we get for Eid during this time of the year. This year was a slightly different one. My kids are both in their board exam years, so we are tied down at home because of this. But yesterday was the last day of hols for my kids and we decided to take a break from everything normal and enjoy a day out.

Memories are meant to be preserved in the form of pictures that remind us of these days and the warmth that these feelings bring about again when we look back at these days. After a very long time, I picked up my camera to click pictures. Of course, the photos below are a combination of pictures clicked from my DSLR and from my iPhone. Sometimes , it is difficult to make out which is which. If you can, do let me know. 🙂

Miracle Garden 2014

I don’t think there could have been a better way to spend the first day of the new year. I spent it with my sisters and our families at the Dubai Miracle Garden. I am sure with all the cameras we used to click photos that day, we would have easily crossed the 1000 mark. Yes, 1000+ photos of a 1.5 hours visit to the fabulous Miracle Garden, Dubai.

Last year I visited the place alone in the morning on a week day. I got a lot of pictures (find them at What My Camera Captures)  without random people in them. This time I wasn’t so lucky as it was too crowded. I did manage to click quite a few lovely patterns, but I missed quite a few too. 😦

What is the point in taking the pictures if you don’t share them right? So I always click two sets of pictures. One with family members and one without them for sharing here.  🙂

It is an iPhone pic. I must carry a DSLR with me at all times from now. But the phone is so handy! 🙂
