Last office lunch for 2010, and we did it in style. Can you guess where we went?
Here is a photo Juvy took when I didn’t have my camera glued to my face. Pretty neat, huh? And see that bird flying low over there? Cool, and yes the sky really was as blue as this. Anyone who knows me and my opinion towards post-processing will know that I never ever tweak photos while some do so to such an extent that it does not look real anymore. And why yes, I hate so-called photographers who over-saturate, over-tweak and over-touch up their photographs. I say, drop the camera and just use Photoshop because what you’re doing falls under graphic designing/artistry. It’s no longer photography. Okay, that’s more than 2 cents I think but you get the drift.
Before we left, we as in myself, Juvy, Jezzel and Sam, I took a photo of them with the lovely Rob. Hi Rob! His beautiful mum is spending the holidays in Dubai but I don’t think we’ll get to see her like last year since we do not have any company gigs now until after everyone gets back from their travels. Weather permitting, of course!
Yes, we went to Madinat Jumeirah. The Noodle House was packed and had a 30 minute wait so I steered my companions toward one of my other favourite, The Meat Company. But first, a stopover by the Burj to take photos.
The Dubai International Film Festival just concluded (with an ungranted request from me to someone to pinch a certain Mr Farrell’s bum on my behalf, bummer) but I think a couple of the celebrities stayed on. Oh no, wait, it’s just Juvy and Jezzel. Silly me. 🙂
It’s so much more relaxed, you can see just how much more natural this photo looks. Jezzel almost always poses when you whip a camera in front of her, but this is something new which I would encourage her to try from now on.
Juvy, on the other hand, ordered ribs and had no idea it was this huge chunk of what I called dragon’s ribs! They were massive. And Juvy, tiny as she is, ate them all. Peri peri sauce and all. It was a great lunch, nice to be out in the fresh air with a bit of sunlight to warm us up. Cheers, guys!
