Default Hello everybody, it's been a while

It's been a long while since I last posted anything on PhotoCamel.. I used to visit these forums daily, before the days of other social networks.

Let me see if I can still remember how to post an image, hehe. This was from my last trip to Dubai



Have a good one..

Cheers,
Waleed

I'll say it's been a while. I don't remember seeing you for several years!

Drifted in the ups and downs of life, with a bit of twitter and flickr

My wife and I escaped from Riyadh to Dubai, for a late celebration of our 30th anniversary. It felt good to unplug & chill for a couple of days, and we sure wished we could afford more.

That is not considered cheating except in certain photographic niches where the documentary aspect is especially important, such as news photography. Otherwise, it is merely considered good post-exposure image processing and incurs no penalty. Our HDR forum is all about that kind of processing. I think that is a feature that appeared during your absence.

My wife and I actually celebrated our 25th anniversary at three different places on three different land masses at three different times spanning almost a year and a half. We got an early start because my wife got very sick and almost died shortly before our first celebration, so we decided to celebrate early in case she didn't make it to our actual 25th. (She did make it, but her strength and endurance are still not up to where they were before and probably never will be.)

I'm confident with your TLC, that health challenge won't even matter. Sending you and yours all the positive vibes in the universe I can convey

Us humans are so fragile, I went through a heart attack, a brain tumor, and recently a mini stroke.. I don't care, if we can still have fun, we should
