Sports photography – I think I can!
This is from an IPL match that was held in 2014 and the Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi. A key wicket moment for Chennai Super Kings… Mobile photography but, one with keen passion… I think I can do it!
Waiting for #IPL to come back to the UAE.
Safe Cycling – a time to Retrospect
