Title • untitled #82

In case you're wondering this is a shot of a part of the DIFC – part reflection, part distortion through a window – and beyond that I don't have too much else to say about this one other than that I like the detail and the way in which the various elements of the original scene interact/overlap. As always though, let me know what you think.

On a different matter: I'm pleased to say that Craig and I are now in Bulgaria. I drove down to Welwyn Garden City on Monday, picked up Craig at around 1pm, then drove down to Dover. We then got the ferry to Calais and drove until 1am - through France, Belgium, Holland and a small part of Germany. On Tuesday we drove almost 1000 miles: through the rest of Germany, all of Austria and most of Hungary, which took us 15 hours. We spent the night in a small campsite at Mako, a few kilometres short of the Romanian border. On Wednesday we drove through Romania, which can best be described as hellish: not least because it took almost 17 hours to traverse the potholes and roadworks. We were also slightly hampered by the fact that the van broke down at one point. It has an electronic throttle: which failed; i.e. you could press the pedal, but nothing happened. It recovered after we stopped, but it did add a certain tension to the rest of the journey :)

We've been busy since we got here, so haven't had any time to shoot yet, but I'm hoping we'll get out over the weekend.
