Beautiful creatures

Wild Deer
The reflection on the fur of the deer has the shade of orange and I admire this creature and having the opportunity to get this close to them is one of my best moments in life.

A hungry fly

With my zoom lens I have managed to capture this hungry fly getting some nutrients from the dates. The image above shows some orange shades reflecting from the dates and I thought this image is worth sharing.

Beautiful sunset

Zabeel 2, Dubai
The image above shows the light of the sunlight passes through the leaves of a palm tree with the reflection of the two buildings in Sh Zayed road. The light of the sun reflecting in this images gave the whole image a touch of an orange hue.

Zabeel 2, Dubai
“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?”   ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
The quote above is just one of favorites and I thought that this image suited the quote.

The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai
As the sun starts to set, the flame on the torch started to glow. The resemblance of the orange on the sky, sun and flame have emerged this whole image into an image where orange is the main color.


Ms Latchmee

Dubai is known with its multinational workers and this special lady wearing her tradition cloths in orange has an interesting story to share. Ms Latchmee Bhuti has been working in Dubai for more than 35 years since the rule of His Highness Sheikh Rashed bin Saeed Al Maktoum. Latchmee left Indian as a teenage to work in a whole new city in order to help her family to earn some income. She hasbeen employed by the sister of His Highnness Sheikh Rashed bin Saeed to work as a housemaid for the children of Her Highness. Latchmee came to the city of Dubai not knowing any language to speak including Urdu, however; as the years passes by she haslearned many languages such as Arabic, English and Urdu. Latchmee says, " I came to Dubai as a young lady and not having a clue where I am going as I couldn't speak or understand any language expect my city's language. But, as I arrived in Dubai during the 1970's the generous hospitality and the kind welcome of her Sheikha Sheikha bin Saeed made me feel that I am at home. Since the day I have arrived in this beautiful city, I knew that I wouldn't want to go back to my own country. UAE is my country and Dubai is my home."

Ms Latchmee and her daughter Kumari

As the year passes by Ms Latchmee grew into a young lady and got married by a gentleman she has meet in the Palace. Ms Latchmee got married in Dubai and born and raised her children in the city. Ms Latchmee now has two children, a young lady named Kumari and a young gentleman named Rakeesh. The photo above shows Ms Latchmee and her daughter Kumari on the left corner of the image. The beautiful colors of their traditional cloths with the background of the fence have created a vibrant image where each color stands for its own, however; the orange of their cloths were the most important part of the image as I was aiming to capture an orange object.

"I was born and raised in Dubai alongside with the help of my mother. I have one small brother and no cousins. I am a nurse today in Rashed Hospital and I earn my money in this wonderful city. I cannot imagine going back to my home country and living there. Dubai is a place I want to raise my children in, just like what my mother did", says Ms Kumari.

A day at the farm

"Hakaleyaat" is the name of this group of goats by the arabic language. This special group of goats are imported from Oman and has one of the finest meats that suits many arabic dishes.

This particular baby goat caught my attention immediately. The story behind this orange color on its fur is that the farmers dye its fur orange with "henna" so that it can be spotted during the dark nights in the desert.

This picture contains many objects with the shade of orange and the strange thing as the sun reflected on the cattle the color of the cattle immediately fullfiled the whole image. 

Hay Barn

Dubai, UAE

Going to the farm is one of my favorite trips ever since I was a little girl. These photos express my love for animals and the love towards mother nature. 

Orange is my favorite color, therefore; the photos above all contain an orange touch. 

Bright orange flowers

Zabeel, Dubai, UAE

I believe in the beauty of nature and these bright orange flowers have caught my attention while I was having a peaceful stroll in the garden. The sun was bright and the color of the flowers against the leaves made it a perfect image to express my peaceful walk on that beautiful day.
