We met Melanie on a Friday brunch at the Mina Salam Hotel in Dubai and got talking to her and her family. Melanie was 19 but speaks with wisdom beyond her years.

Here are the results, what do you think?:

Seriously cool guy, Tony posed for one of my favourate photos to date.  Tony is a professional Muey Thai boxer in Dubai. The photo was overlayed with textured paper to give a feel of olde medieval hardness!

Shot at the summit of Sochi mountains… where the 2014 Winter Olympics will hopefully be held. When I skied here… there were still no lifts! We used army helicopters to reach the top. A terrible accident later this day led to the deaths of two Russian skiers by avalanche.  Health and safty was not on the top of their priority list !!!

Not often you can pull  off a nice landscape shot with a 2oomm lens.

Those days, I was still working on the D100 and also attached a polarizing filter no doubt.
