Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Mr. Ken’s Sunrise

Another expat with a view-to-die-for sent me some photos today I want to share with you. First, I want to share his description of what he went through to get the photos, LLOOOLLLL!

I had to open the window to take the pictures because they are, understandably, very dirty on the outside (12th floor apt). It was a little chilly so I had closed the window waiting for the sun to show. When it did, the lock and the window had jammed (from lack of use most likely) so I wasn’t able to take the last shot I wanted. Ironically, the lock on the window popped out about three hours later all on its own (probably solar heating).

Here is the first one – I just love the blue-ness of it!


Here are the next two:


He’s loaned his good camera to a friend, so he took these with his cell phone. Great photos, Ken! By the way, every now and then your building management probably schedules a team to wash your windows. They will come in one of those gondola like things. It usually happens the day before the next sandstorm. 😦

  7. p.s. – Other than selective framing through the viewfinder all I did was push the button.

    Truly, they say more to the wonder of nature and the glory of God than to my novice skills.

    Have a wonderful day everyone.

  8. Ken – Get your good camera back! If you can do this with a cell-phone-camera, we want to see what you can do with a real camera. 2. Start a blog! Call it Expat Eye and show us what you see. When you are fresh in Kuwait, you see things that you stop seeing after you have been here a while. or iExpat! LLLOOOLLL!
