Sniff, sniff... what's that smell? - #100

... that's the smell of 100 photos in 100 days!

This shot was taken today at BIg Red Dunes in Dubai, with my wife and our visiting good friends Stella and Keith. A cool day!

It's been a fun 100 days. I hope to bring many more photos over the next 100 days and more.

Thanks to all for dropping by!

Congrats to my Daily Photo Twin" Jing in Shanghai - who also celebrates 100 posts today!

Bluey, shaken not stirred and most assuredly - at your service.

DXBluey...I echo Eric's words! 100 posts already? I've really enjoyed your blog and a place I hope to get to one day. I've heard so much about the growth there that I really want to see it for myself.

Thank you for doing this blog as I know it takes a lot of time!

Congratulations and happy 100th post. Best wishes on your continued success.

grapeshisha said...

Congrats to you. I look forward to the next 100. It's an amazing thing that you have started here.

Lisi said...

haha Bluey, I didn't know I indirectly dragged you into this...oh well...btw, just want to add that you wouldn't be always 1/3 of HKDP, I'm just 200 posts ahead, so when I get to 1,000 (! oh my), you will get to 800 so you will be more than 2/3 :-)...never mind the numbers, let's have fun anywaz!

Wonderful pics...absolutely stunning.
I had no idea a canon A530 had the power to do so much!
I'm gonna get this camera right now!

CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSSS... amazzzing pic!!!

DXBluey said...

Hi Archer,

I killed my previous Sony and wanted a good replacement. This camera was about 600dhs or so. I got it in Radio Shack in City Center in Dubai (I think). In 2 months I've taken over 1,100 shots.

The best thing about this pretty cheap point and shoot (and the very reason why I got it over more expensive ones) is the array of settings and options.

Dubai Shopping Festival is coming up too...

I do like the camera...

Cheers for coming by.
