I saw this man, removed his sandals and sat by the ledge of the pillars. Wondering and waiting for something. Sweaty, he reached for his pocket a hanky, wiped his forehead and neck. He looked around and up, closed his eyes but did not pray. I thought to myself that this man is just tired. Being curious, I approached to the man with a question. I asked him if he is alright. He answered with gladness, “Yes I’m OK! I’m just waiting for Almighty’s answer to my prayers”.

Jim Alonzo is a coffee-addicted Interior Designer, who loves photography, potato chips, and driving people mad. When Jim had his first Instamatic camera (Olympus) in college, he never knew that it is going to be one of his passions. He set up a small studio and took pictures of his sisters and when he saw the photos he had taken, he said to him “I think I’m loving this.” When the DSLR boomed into Dubai circuit, he bought his own DSLR, and from then on, he never stopped taking photographs. His favorite subjects to photograph are kids and landscapes. He believes that, maybe someday he will have the chance to meet the famous photographers around the world and have the chance to work with them.
