**A VISUAL EXPERIMENTALIST.**

The Slug is My Hero.

We are surrounded by beautiful things, living or otherwise, that we are taught from a young age to dislike because they are “distasteful”. I believe the only thing that is distasteful are foggy eyes that can no longer see beauty.

These two images are part of a series of photos I took with a DIY lens right after the rain in Riyadh a few days ago when slugs and other “creepy crawlers” were out having fun in the backyard.

I haven’t picked up a camera in quite a while. I almost forgot how to use one.

Now that I’ve graduated after spending 5+ years at KFUPM studying architecture with some great guys, I finally feel slightly rehabilitated!

I Shall Be Fierce and Remorseless | a tribute.

I really miss my ex-kitten Chopin which was kidnapped from in front of our house. It’s been a very long while now, and I’ve been thinking about him lately. This is a series I did a while back in tribute to to the cutest cat ever. Wherever you are Chopin I hope you’re safe and happy! 😀
