It was again in one of my photowalks in the Corniche Park when I bumped these two.
The park is near to my place and also it is near to the beach as well. I love the surroundings that’s why I always go to this park.
And there’s no other place where you can relax and be with nature in this country.
I was walking and busy looking for some good spots to take photos.
When suddenly these two guys called me and approached me from out of nowhere. I was surprised because I don’t know them. All along they were watching me from a distance.
Then, they told me if I could take a photo of them. They were enthusiastic to have their photos taken. I was just smiling and without hesitation, I agree.
I said to myself – what a coincidence? I badly needed a portrait for my portfolio and here they are. By the way, I’m shy to ask someone to take their photographs I rather used a scenery or an object as my subject.
It took several shots until I got a perfect one.
I requested their consent first before I put in my portfolio and use it in my social media accounts. Because If there’s none it will be a violation of privacy and there are legal proceedings here in the UAE.
Before we parted ways, we exchanged social media account and I “tag” them.
It was a coincidence.
That’s how we became friends.
