Foto Friday


The Geneva waterfront is a hive of activity, in the evenings especially but also i the early morning. MB caught these two ladies relaxing and chatting at 7am in the morning, clearing the heads before the day ahead no doubt. And why were you out at 7am in the morning shooting photos MB? Well lads, it’s just the kind of thing MB does.

Foto Friday – Irish Scene


The Foto Friday selection this week is an MB shot from his trip home of a few weeks back. And it doesn’t come more Irish than this.

Two guys do a spot of fishing from a boat on Lough Derg lake, to the backdrop of a stone-built Round Tower, and an emerald green hill.

Foto Friday – Stables


Just round the corner from Souq Waqif in Doha, there’s a camel and horse stables complex. Horses often sleep in the standing position. These three had just dozed off when MB captured them.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflecting


Reflecting.

If ever you wish to turn water to wine, or you require the secret alchemist recipe to turn mercury to gold, or you wish to turn a simple semicircle to a full circle – just ask MB. He will have the answer.

This incredible semicircle to full circle reflection-shot is taken from MB’s photo cave – one of his Amsterdam trip with daughter MB2 shots in November 2016.

Wicked shot MB. Thanks lads!

Foto Friday – Landscape


The Arabian gulf is primarily flat desert landscape. So on trips elsewhere, anything other than ‘flat’ tends to be a visual assault on the brain of MB.

During a work trip to Switzerland in 2015, MB took a train trip to Montreaux to take in the sights. Switzerland is anything but flat, and some of the scenery is quite spectacular.

The below shot shows one of Switzerland’s most visited attractions; Chateaux De Chillon, which is walking distance from Montreaux town centre, some 45 minutes along the shore of Lake Geneva.

MB will henceforth give a regular ‘Sunday Shot’ to followers, which will be slightly abstract in nature. He will say no more.
