My Love for Marina!

The Grand Marina!

Hello there !

Its been almost 6 months that we’ve moved here and Dubai is growing on me. From the stress of moving your life into this completely new domain, I have now moved into this cocoon of comfort that this city offers. It is all because of the wonderful people I ve met, the amazing infrastructure that Dubai offers and of course the surroundings and environment that we encounter on a day to day basis.

Living in a city that is a major tourist hub, especially at this time of the year, you realise how much the beauty of all things- big and small, make u fall in love with it slowly and steadily. I know its just one factor amongst many that has contributed to this, but I truly believe when u live amongst such beauty, it makes u feel good each and everyday. So here’s my take on Dubai Marina, the very dynamic and absolutely beautiful part of Dubai.

Cheers & Joy, Always!

Enjoy!

Ps: More to follow soon!!!!!

Before Sunset!

Hello!

Our Emirati sojourns officially began yesterday with a short trip to Al Ain, the beautiful Garden City of UAE. It surely is a very pleasant surprise with more greenery around, hardly any high rise in sight and of course much lower decibel levels.

There’s so much to do here for  everyone- Museums, Forts, Zoo etc. It’s a family getaway for sure. All we had time for yesterday was the Al Ain zoo and a drive to the top of Jebel Hafeet to experience the spectacular sunset from the top.

Rising 1,240 metres, Jebel Hafeet is the emirate’s highest peak, and UAE’s second that stands guard over Al Ain and borders Oman.

The ride to the top is not an easy one but the views of the craggy and beautifully weathered mountain all along surely are worth the trouble.

Once on top, all you need to do is find the right place to stop and park ( many stopover points all along) and enjoy the view.

We thoroughly enjoyed a few hours of bliss up there and will be going back soon again. If you are in and around Al Ain, surely take time out to enjoy this view from the top. I can assure you of an unforgettable experience.

The Amsterdam Pride!

Hello,

The National Coming Out Day (NCOD),an annual LGBT awareness day, was celebrated on 11 Oct in USA. It actually reminded me of a very colourful and unique event witnessed in Amsterdam in 2015, the Canal Parade – Amsterdam Gay Pride.

Cooes N Cuddles Photography//ThPride//Celebrating Love

Celebrating love!

Amsterdam Pride or Amsterdam Gay Pride is a citywide gay-festival held annually during August, meant to celebrate equality, freedom and diversity. The festival attracts several hundred-thousand visitors each year and is one of the largest publicly held annual events in the Netherlands.The Canal Parade is the highlight of Amsterdam Pride and is a very happy and joyous event.

Cooes N Cuddles Photography//ThPride//The Talk

The Talk

The Canal Parade is exciting to the core. People dressed in colourful & fun attires, some dressed to impress, some definitely dressed to kill! Boats with the craziest music and the most outrageous tricks. The spectators cheering the participants and enjoying everything to bits! Whoa… What an event!!! A most memorable one.

I grabbed this opportunity to click some beautiful portraits and street shots and I was glad to be there.

Cheers & Joy, Always!

Animal Lover!!!

Hellooz!

I am delighted to contribute to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Animals.

Delighted because I simply love animals. My mum still tells me stories of me making doggie friends very early on, bringing home kittens after rescuing them from a thorny bush, putting my hands inside a cage just to pet a wild cat and many many more. As I grew older, I never outgrew my love for all things alive.

So for me spotting an animal and clicking it is not just a chance event. Everytime I am out clicking, I keep my eyes and ears open for an opportunity to spot ’em. I like to capture those moments- some fun, some crazy, some cute, some different and mostly very ‘animal’y. I love the fact that they don’t care about me clicking them, they just remain as they are and let me be me. Of course I do ensure that I respect their space not only while clicking, as I would of any human.

I am sharing herewith a few jewels captured till date. I truly believe that all creatures alive are Special in their own way and we need to Love and respect them.

Eyes of Gold

I’d never seen anything quiet like this one. A slate grey cat with a soft uniform fur and beautiful golden eyes. I think she belonged to the security guards of a housing complex in Kryvyi Rih -Ukraine.

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/The couple

The Couple

On a photo walk in Mumbai I found this couple, who’d just had a big row and weren’t ready to make up. Grr… I am sure the male was at fault!!! ;o)
They did present a great photo opp to me.

Furrr ball

While the tourists gallivanted the streets of Florence, this fur ball just went about his job of sleeping and ignoring admirers like me. I think he was pretty great at it.

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/Livelifecowsize

Live Life Cow Size

Who wouldn’t want a life so great, that you’d roam about the beautiful Swiss Alps in search for food, laze around in the plains, drink the pristine waters of the lakes and return to the barn at night to sleep. I want to Live Life Cow Size!!!

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/The Mexican

The Mexican

“Ola Amigo” said this parakeet when I walked passed him in the narrow alleys of Ixtapa’s flea market. Oh so Mexican to make my head turn and demand a very well deserved attention. Sad he was also behind bars!!

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/Chip or Dale??

Chip or Dale???

Celebrity sighting was definitely on the cards on my evening stroll in Central Park, NY. Chip or Dale… its for you to guess!

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/TrueBeauty

True Beauty

The only bear I saw on my trip to the Bear Mountains, USA was this huggy bear and it was Love at first sight. After numerous hugs and kisses and a few photographs to remember him, with a heavy heart (only at my end) I left for home. I have never seen a Dog so grand and commanding so much respect. Bow Wow Wow!

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/Familia

Familia..

I know this family isn’t roaming about the jungles of Africa but the Cologne Zoo doesn’t seem like a bad option right now..huh! Enjoying the afternoon sun, this family of Giraffes does paint a very perfect “Happy Family Portrait” kind of picture. I know there aren’t Happy Happy in captivity, but at least they look well fed and safe from any other threats.

cooesncuddlesphotography/Animallover/Birdwatching

Bird Watching!!!

Finally, one of my favourites. This seagull looked pretty darn satisfied just watching his fellow gulls fly past him over the canals in Amsterdam. I remember him being there for almost 12-15 mins just “Bird watching”.

Hope you enjoyed these clicks as much as I enjoy experiencing them. I wish to keep finding more of such beautiful moments, to see them in their own element, enjoying their natural habitats, wild and free.

Cheers & Joy, Always!

The BRUGGE I fell for…

Hello!!!

Every few weeks I bring to you stories from my European Swirl. Today it’s all about my Love Affair with Brugge. It’s about what I saw and what I felt, making me fall totally and completely in love with it.

Sun Bathing

Brugge at first is a treat for your eyes. A trip here is like a walk through Medieval Europe. The Gothic structures all around in brick as well as multiple colours speak volumes of the architectural influences of Northern Europe & the Baltic here. The Cathedral, Belfry, Churches & Historical monuments are all worth seeing. Constructed as per the medieval street pattern where all lanes/streets lead you to the public squares, Brugge has a number of  crisscrossing lanes, confusing tourists as hell. The canals all around don’t make it easier either, but definitely beautify the town more.

Beauty Every where

Canals galore

As you meander the streets, you witness the culture, the local way of life and appreciate the simple living. I can easily proclaim that Waffles & Frittes define a wholesome Belgium meal, paired with some fine local beers and of course exotic Belgian Chocolates. You have plenty of options throughout Brugge to try all of the above. If this doesn’t fill you enough, a mug full of Belgian Hot Chocolate will surely do.

Even though I’ve said enough, my enough ain’t even close to enough. So to conclude, I feel the local handicrafts(Ceramics & Embroidered goods) need at least an honourable mention here. I spent only close to 10 hrs exploring Brugge and it still managed to make a mark on me and now occupies a special place in my heart.
