Ah yes, the museum. My go-to place whenever I’m in a new city. It was a sort of tradition started by my father. However, I hate taking photos of the actual artifacts and paintings. In my opinion, if you want to see those then go to the museum.

The frustrating thing about getting your car washed in the desert? Wait 30 minutes and it will be covered in sand again.

The Louvre

the louvre abu dhabi

Louvre Abi Dhabi is visual beautiful, built next to and on top of the Arabian Gulf. It is still new, you can still smell the paint.

The photos I took that day weren’t perfect… it was very sunny so shadows and backlighting proved a challenge. But I guess it’s all good practice which is my main objective.
