Pic(k) of the week 8: THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA.
On February 22nd, I celebrated my 50th birthday. A milestone I guess?
Although initially planned to be celebrating at a different place, we ended up in one of our favorite UAE hotels for the night, the Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach resort. This beachfront hotel is a great place to chill out and avoid the hustle and bustle of Dubai.
While taking a sunset stroll, Hemingway’s book “The old man and the sea” came to mind; a book I was forced to read at school as a young teenager but of which I didn’t understand the underlying message till much later. I'm not a fan of appearing in front of the camera but as this day was a special one, it was only fair for my wife to make a few images. The old man and the sea was back.
