The last few times I've been in Dubai as an instructor at one of the Gulf Photo Plus training events I've managed to grab quite a few shots, either during my shooting workshops, or while out and about with my fellow instructors. This time though (the FotoWeekend event) we've been really busy so I haven't got much to show you other than the two shots that I've already posted ... hence today's image, a shot of a pair of broken sunglasses on Blackpool beach.

That said, I'm heading down to Oman later today for a few day's shooting with Bobbi Lane. We don't have any fixed plans, but I suspect we'll spend time on the beach, down at the Souks, and might take a trip further out to grab a few landscapes. We're travelling for most of today, but I might have something to post by tomorrow evening.

Love it.

I think that this is the first picture where I could really tell that you had used the transform tool.

Did not realize that the glasses were under water until I saw the original. Cool image.

It works really well because the pool of water is so still allowing you to capture all the detail through the surface and to find such an unusual piece of junk. :)

The most prosaic thing becomes a cool picture. Great image.

This shots unusual and spiffy... Not one of your typical beach shots!

Very creative and original. I like the loneliness of this as well.
