Last of Nikon sessions, Beginning of Photography, and Some Other things…

   Thursdays have been hectic, but sadly, for the last time. Yesterday was my last Nikon photography workshop. So ask me, was this workshop worthwhile? Yes, it didn’t really bothered my time management, even I wished it lasted a bit longer. Have I learned more about photography? Yes and even I appreciate it more now. Am I going to take more pictures in the future? Of course! Will I be implementing what I learnt? At least, I will try. 
My friend who used to lead me the way to the Nikon place in Hamra travelled that afternoon to Kuwait to see her family during the Easter Holidays. So I managed to get there on my own. 
I spent the time after my English class at the green oval that is basically a place on grass. I took some pictures there where I was sitting in front of “Issam Fares Institute”-in-construction designed by internationally acclaimed architect, Zaha Hadid—who was also once a student at AUB. I was on my own shooting the world through my lens as I would like to say one day—but I was just shooting some architecture.
And I just remember, I am going to miss the people from my workshop. Yesterday, I even managed to speak to the woman who works at the finance department in the government to ask her some advices and some guidance about that whole wide business world.
And I even told the stylish woman that I love her style, I love her shoes, and when I came to ask her about those silver oxfords she wore with the stripes socks she laughed and said they were old—of course. I am such a fan of her style that the next time I see her I hope I dare to ask her if I can shoot her and show you here! Yesterday she was wearing a pair of double platform white sneakers with such a statement jacket that I can’t even get to describe it—I don’t have the words, neither in English nor in French and even less in Arabic. But well I can say it’s Celine’s simplistic style combined with Maison Martin Margiela’s madness.
 I wish very soon to be able to express further my clothing style and have a wardrobe that screams Me. About freedom, my driving license test is in 10 days and I cannot wait anymore!  Cheers to that and to being free!
