Deira, Dubai

In the heat of April’s early mornings, I stood like a kid in a candy store, not knowing where to go or look; everything attracts me!!!  It isn’t my first trip to Deira, I have come here many times.  Yet that feel of novelty always lingers in the air when I am there.  Deira isn’t just a shopping for rare objects, or spices but a place to find inspiration!

Between the so many mosques’ roofs popping in the skyline I sit and sketch my first watercolor.  This beautiful and colorful round dome is just breath-taking.

Just as I come out from the shaded corner at the entrance of the old souk, I see an older man taking refuge from the radiant sun.  Next to me, and unaware, he stays still and poses for me…
