Issues and Problems  - 
 
After the newest Chrome OS update I couldn't get Ubuntu to start, solved this issue by updating crouton. The only issue now is that once I launch Ubuntu I can't get back to Chrome OS unless I logout of Ubuntu ( ctrl + alt + > and < are not working) wondering if anyone else is facing the same issue?

I'm experiencing similar issues.  Performed a fresh install of unity 14.04.  Updated the crouton several times.  rebooted.  I can enter the chrome terminal type sudo startunity and it boots ubuntu.  The only way back to chrome is to log out of ubuntu.  
ctrl + alt + shift (or without shift) + arrow does nothing.   I had unity 12.04 running earlier this week and I was able to switch back and forth with no issues.   Sorry for dragging this issue back out.

The View From Kathmandu Guest House

Took this photo few months ago during my stay at Kathmandu, Nepal. I'm thinking of going there again, hopefully I'll be able to stay longer next time.

Visited Austin, TX for the first time, awesome city and I gotta say that I've fallen in love with this place. While being there I've decided to get a portrait shot from @lumiere_tintype , Adrian uses a vintage technique; using a large 8x10 camera to capture photos on a tin plate. I've personally enjoyed the experience and how seeing how the photo was processed. Make sure you follow Adrian and check out his awesome work!

Oh yea, and that's how i look without shaving for about 6 months... #Texas #Austin #portrait #Vintage #Tintype #Travel #Beard #TheManClub

The Glowing Eyes of a Nepali Kid

Happy New Years Everyone! Arrived back to Kuwait yesterday after Spending few days in Nepal! A beautiful country and a 'HEAVEN' for street photography. I spent New Years in the streets of Pokhara with my new friend +Chris Brinlee Jr who's an awesome adventure and travel photographer, I took this photo of this kid who was looking at my camera equipment with an open eyes, after taking the photo I pulled out my Fujifilm Instax 210 and took a Polaroid photo of him and his family and gave it to him, at first he was looking to me with a strange look because he thought that I gave him some white papers, after waiting for about 2 minutes the photos started to appear and it was like magic to his eyes and he had big smile on his face.

I wished if I stayed longer in Nepal and I can't wait to get back there again.

House Ruins in Failaka Island, Kuwait

Found this old house while wandering around Failaka Island, you can see the word "Allah" (God) written on the wall behind the open door entrance.

Graffiti Artiste

Been away from my cameras and photography since I started my 'loaded' spring semester, I will try to post photos whenever I see myself free and hopefully in the right mood to edit my photos.

We had our Spring break last week and I decided to spend a week without a laptop, I went on a road trip to Texas and visited Austin for the first time, I can't believe that I've been in the USA for a long time and haven't been there before, beautiful city and a heaven for artists! Took this photo at the Graffiti Park at Castle Hills where people can paint and draw what they want on the walls. Saw this artist drawing and asked if I can take a photo of him. Editing this photo was kinda hard since I had many versions that I liked.

This photo was taken with the Sony a6000 using the kit lens!

Glowing Smile

I've been non active online since I've started this semester few weeks ago, I don't even have much time to spend on post-processing the photos I took during my recent trips. I managed to spend sometime today editing this photo, While editing this photo the cute smile of this Nepali girl kept me thinking of a way to make this photo a bit better, I decided later to use textures on this photo and make it look like a painting that has a 'Monalisa painting' color scheme.

Pokhara Sunset

This Photo was taken on top of a Tower about 45 mins away from the retreat that we were staying at (It's the small building near the center of the photo). We hired a driver to take us to the retreat, the road was nice in the first 10 seconds after that it became REALLY bumpy, we felt like we were popcorn until we got close to the retreat. We were surprised to see the driver stopping; and then telling us that his car can't go any further and we will have to hike our way up to the retreat!!

Thankfully we were able to wave at the retreat workers and they helped us carry our luggage, it literally took them 5-10 minutes to walk up and get to the retreat while it took me and my sister about half an hour!

The retreat is an awesome place to stay at for a night or two but getting there is a pain in the butt. It's an eco-friendly place where the use solar panels for electricity and they grow their own organic food!!

Single Chair in a Classroom

This photo was taken inside an old school that have been destroyed during the Gulf War in 1990, this was probably a chair of a teacher at some point, while walking through the school I tried to imagine the life before, during and after the war in this school, decided to go with black and white because it felt right for this type of scenes.
