The Extraordinary Ordinary - Own Time, Private Moments by the Shoreline..


We all sometimes need a bit of 'own time', something, especially for us urbanites, that can be difficult to find both the time as well as a place for. The aren't many parks here in Kuwait, at least of the type which would allow for these types of occasions to take place (they're usually a bit too regimented and sparsely laid out to support such happenings). The beach, however, seems to be such a place. There is something about a large body of water, with its shifting tides and subtly rippling surface tones and patterns, that inevitably seems to soothe even the most distracted or hyper-active mind, provide a context for private contemplation, and just allow for the non-planned to pan out...

The included photos were taken both in Kuwait as well as Sharjah...
