Blog 60: Dogwood 52 Weeks Photography Challenge (Week 7: Story: Forgotten)
Reading Time: approx. 3 min.
Week 6 challenge was about “forgotten” in a story framework. I wanted to revisit the work I did in week 4 (mirror) when I took some pictures of “workers”; the simple men and women who make our life easier without being noticed because what they do we took for granted. So I started to take pictures focusing on photographing “workers”. Here are some pictures:
I was fortunate to attend GPP 2017 in Dubai; the region biggest photography event in my opinion. And to my luck, I attended a workshop with Zack Arias to have a street photography photo walk in old Dubai area. With all the mega projects Dubai is doing, the old Dubai area (Al Bastakiya area) was “forgotten”. That is amazing, let’s kill two birds with one stone and shoot the forgotten theme week in Al Bastakiya. Here are some pictures:

If you did these challenges long enough, you will be able to connect and link many aspects of previous challenges into whatever you are about to shoot. That is one of the most important parts of involving in the weekly challenges.
