    Some desert landscapes would be nice, or pictures of the sea. You live in a nice place, we used to live in Al Ain when I was still a kid.

    Oh, didn't know you were living in Al Ain.

    Well, i am not into desert photography at all, and about the sea, yes, this is one thing i am gonna do, but not from beginning, and your comment that i live in a beautiful place, well, the only beautiful thing here is the sun and warm weather for about 3-4 months and then very hot humid weather for the rest of the year, also cheap food.

    Thank you, Don!

    Yes, can't wait to use the lens, but i don't have printing device and no darkroom, and here they want almost only prints, you will not see anything.

    The lens arrived the country, and it will be delivered by Saturday, and the customs duty for it is about $130, and i really don't know where did people say that UAE is free of Tax, we are "Call for Duty".

    Anyhow, i have to wait few days until i feel fine after that bad customs duty or TAX.

    The Hafit tombs look like something you can take your time over. Jebel Hafit looks good. Al Ain fort and oasis. Jebel Mileiha. Hatta and Hajar mountains. Wadi Wurrayah.
    Looks like there is so much more than sand and water
    Tell Abraq may be closer to Ajman and looks interesting.

    HEHE, so you google it and you name them for me?

    Well, those areas are all far away from me, but i am thinking about some places nearby, there is an area with full houses empty old, i think look like ruins, but they always keep a horror stories about that isolated place, as it is full of ghosts or what we call it "Jinn".

    Ah well, I have no idea of distances or ease of travel.
    but I have seen some marvelous non sand images from U.A.E.
    By the way, you know you will have to use infrared film to get the Jinn to record.
