The english translation for the arabic sentence is:
“Jealous with no reasons
Forget we become lovers”

I could delete it, but I like it more this way.

Al Mukalla – Al Mihdar Park


Athena As Grace


23rd Jan 2015.

How I can describe an absent feeling?I just can’t !
Its passed me away, hidden in the line of time.

Due to unlucky chain of actions I’ve missed the most important day of my life, the birth of Athena.
And since life so generous I’ve waited 6 months to just get my hands on her for about 4 hours!

Athena rhe most curious kid ever, while preparing my manual lense and make it ready and steady, I shout to her name!


Visit to Al Mukalla City August/September 2013

The Arabian Sea holds many frightened stories, many tears been shed over the years for drowned people. Found on later days.
The second day in the city, one experienced swimer have drowned ang his body got missed. Only after 30 days they found his body drifted away 22 kilometers.
It reminds me with my first visit to the city when I was 10 years old, where the Arabian Sea was most savage and bersek. There were 12 years old girl with a light blue dress playing around the sea near to sunset, in a blink of eye, a huge wave hit the shore and stole the girl infront of all of us. It like Poseiden hand went out from the sea and took her away deep, deep inside. Another hand went out from above and end up her struggling. From that day and I have a grudge over this city!

This shot took before kids jumped in swimming while setting in old traditional cafee. Unfortunately people there are paranoid and distrustful, so I couldn’t take a shot for the cafee…


In August/September 2013, I visited Aden for a first time, probably for the last as well, spending the honey moon with my wife.

Although riots it’s about to start, and grouping was near to my resident againt the government and supporting for the sepration cause, check points was almost everywhere, yet people in this divine city are incredibly nice, even though I was in the modern part, still I felt nothing but a warm welcoming for an immigrant who last visit to his country happened when he was 10 years old!

This shot taken in high place where we plan to visit one mall market. The taxi driver was more than kind to park a side and asked me to take my time “but, ensure you take a good picture please”

Like these kind of people in Aden full of them. Where’s modernity completely not crushed their humanity. War is vicious and went as disaster in Aden, looks completely ruined, my hope only, that people heart not changed.
