holloween in abu dhabi by mungkey holloween in abu dhabi by mungkey
Last halloween was very different from my previous ones. Iv been used to Filipino style holloweens. Scary stuff here and there, scary movies, scary stories all around, and all the celebration. We also go to cemetery and visit our dead. All these things and almost every body is so into it. But we are now here on a new place. This is Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Me and my girlfiend ~wellamaria, we work here. Perhaps there is some kind of Holloween celabration here, but we still don't know where, and who does trick or treating and stuff. So we just went out and see the people and the streets of Abu Dhabi. And it seems people here just move around, and do not really think about holloween. Perhaps they know about it, or have heard about it, but they are not used to it. So, no street signs and prints and decorations anywhere. All types of people are here. Different cultures and religions are mixed here. People don't care. Celebrate ur own celebrations. The majority in our place has become a mere minority here. So its like, mind your own business. hehe.

It is free to dream, free to roam around. So, we hit the streets and took pictures. I almost steppd over this black cat. I didnt notice it. The feline was lying down without a single care in her mind about what is going on with the world. She just sat down in the middle of the sidewalk seeing people pass by.

We took a photo of the kitty cat and gave it a vintage feel in photoshop.

A very amatuerish shot. Hah! You have to forgive me. Its my first time to click on a weird type of camera. hehe.

and also one more thing, i set the layers on top of the picture, and i make the gradients have transparency near the center so i wont overly over the cat. And then i set the layer blending mode for each to exclusion. And then i adjust the opacity to reveal more of the underlying picture. hehe. and voila! :D

I used a normal slr. Pretty baisc shot. any other camera can do it. :)

for the colors, i used photoshop, and i made 2 gradient fill layers. The color of each layer fill is from solid to transparent. One from the left and one from the right. The one on the right has a bluish color. And the one on the left has a redish sort of magenta color. Im not too picky-accurate about the colors for this one, as long as i can get the feel that i want. that's going to be it. hehe.

We have enough scares here in Abu Dhabi, its halloween everyday! :D

Nice touch with the vintage feel, I swear you're using pastel colors (oh c'mon, admit it, you're a sucker for pastels as much as I am :) )

There was a Halloween Party here in dubai! But I didn't have the money to go.

I know, it sucks so much here, this is my fav time of the year and the UAE is killing it! =P
