Weekly Photo Challenge : Free Spirit >>>> Dubai

Last Christmas I went to Dubai for a trip , &  I just fell in love with it , here are some beautiful pictures of my memories which I think suits the current theme

This pic was shot at the entrance of H.H. Sheikh ‘s palace , ruler of Dubai , peacocks just wander around there freely , it was so surprising . I have never seen so many peacocks wandering around freely even in the presence of so many people. We fed them chips & they really liked it .

 

 

Dubai mall ha sits own attractions , one of them was this Ice Rink , even though I didn’t tried it , i could still feel the free spirit of people who were moving around the ice so swiftly  , like no barriers , just going with the flow …..

 

 

This exotic waterfall appeals to me more in the form of letting yourself free  , the upside down , makes it even more intensify , it just goes with the theme of Free spirit .

 

 

This pic was taken at Sandy Beach Fujairah UAE , while walking on the beach , able to look at my mirror image , feeling the water waves crack at my feet now and then , & listening to the voice of ship going far , it was like I was in 3rd dimension , even in the middle of  such a public place, I found my solitude . Free from all the worldly boundaries , flying  across …..

 

 

This shot was captured by me at Jumeirah beach , Dubai , it was a beautiful moment captured.

 

 

I am glad we didn’t got the parking place on the 1st floor of Emirates mall, in the search of parking slot we headed up straight to the terrace , & I couldn’t stop gazing at the beautiful sunset , between the high rise buildings , it was like sun was biding good bye to me , this was the last day i was staying in Dubai , & I just stood there for couple of moments biding farewell to Dubai & taking all those beautiful memories with me.

 

Take journey of exploration ……

 

Most people like to travel. Most people have, at some stage in their life, gone through an internal crisis, where they have been uncertain of their future and which path they should take. Most people love the idea of a journey of self discovery. Most people wish they could have an adventure, preferably in an exotic location and with an attractive tour guide. And if most people don’t like these things, that’s fine, cause I do.

You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now, because you’ll never be this way again.”

Azar Nafisi

 

Your journey could be of anything , it is not bounded by the limitations of locations , or destinations , the real journey is something from which you learn , that touches you beyond your imagination , that changes you for better , the journey we take is not about following a pre-defined path , but about creating that path . Life rarely makes any more sense when things are done  ‘in order ‘ , Life makes sense when we are centered in our own Hearts , & we  let go of resisting  how our own unique journey needs to unfold ,in its own beautiful way…
