Failaka's Gulf War Remains

Took this photo of an old missile laying on the ground next to a destroyed house on Failaka Island in Kuwait while wandering there few months ago.

Bay Bridge from the Secret Garden

While in San Francisco I wanted to shoot some photos of the Bay Bridge, I wanted to take a photo that looked different and would standout against the other photos that looked much similar to me, While I was exploring around San Francisco I came across this stairway that was filled with plants and tress, decided to walk up and this was the view that I was looking for.

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.

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!

Fun fact: Beats by Dre are made mostly of plastic... plus a few metal weights to give the illusion of quality.

Midnight in San Francisco

First photo to be edited and processed after turning 28 years old (ALMOST 30! O_O)!!!

I'm back in Kuwait and also working on my final university project, editing and shooting photo times are limited at the moment but trying to do that when I can.

Took this photo during my last trip to San Francisco, CA AKA my favorite city in the USA, if you have been there before then you know how crazy the weather is, you get a misty/wet mornings, sunny during around noon, windy around sunset, and really foggy and cold at night!

Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco

Just returned from San Francisco (My favorite city in the US!!!), I had the opportunity to attend Google I/O for the first time, and totally enjoyed it! Spent few extra days to explore and shoot photos, managed to take this photo of the dome at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, it reminded me of the time I was in Egypt while visiting the pyramids there, This is an awesome place for photographers!!

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.
