This is my penultimate shot from my trip to Dubai, after which I'm definitely going to turn my attention to documenting Bulgaria. Strangely, I've now been here for almost a month but have found that I've been oddly reluctant to commit myself to photographing anything other than the kids. I'm not sure why I haven't been more proactive, but suspect that it has something to do with being overwhelmed by choice; i.e. there are millions of things I could be photographing – old buildings, the locals, aspects of our village and Bulgarian culture, and so on – I just haven't done so, at least not yet.

Anyway, in between starting my new book (which I'll say more about in a subsequent entry) and continuing to settle into our Bulgarian routine, I will make an effort to get out and about with my camera.

On a totally different matter: I'll be back in the UK in June as we're running a training course in Blackpool on the weekend of 13/14th June. The cost for the course is £225.00 and we still have a few places left. If you'd like to receive some more information please email Libby for the details (libby AT chromasia DOT com).
