I never thought I would survive a week without my camera, especially now that I'm actively blogging my weekend jaunts. I left my phone and camera chargers in our hotel room. Forgetful and foolish, I know! The housekeeping department of Kempinski Hotel safely kept my belongings until I have the spare time to travel and pick my things up. I had super hectic weekends after our mini-vacation in Ajman, so my precious camera has been sleeping for a month and I have been borrowing Ed's mobile phone charger (good thing we have the same phone model). Anyway, I survived with iPhoneography, an art of taking creative photos using the iPhone.
Ed and I, together with my friends, went to Dubai Marina for two consecutive weekends. It is our fave chill-out spot in Dubai. There's a nice beach, a strip of restaurants along the coast line, a good view of high-rise buildings, yacht clubs and a mall nearby. It is where we put our basic iPhoneography skills to the test. Though we have been there more than a hundred times, we were still snap crazy! Click here, there and everywhere!
We took a lot of photos, but these six are my favorites.
I thought it would be a disaster without my camera and I would spend weekends sulking at home, but I was wrong! Big thanks to iPhoneography, I was able to have great pictures with or without additional filters!
Directions to Dubai Marina via public transport:
* take the train on the Red Line
* get off the train at Dubai Marina Metro Station
* Marina Walk and the Yacht club are just steps away from Dubai Marina Metro Station
* JBR-The Walk and the beach are quite far from the metro station, either take a cab or the feeder bus or walk for 10-15 minutes from the main road to the coastline.
