In a previous post I complained about not having much to do this summer and that it will be a lonely and boring time. This turned out to be untrue.
A comment on the post changed that.
Mr. Mohammad posted that I should come to a local photo shoot for a competition organized by members of a local online community on http://www.qatarliving.com/. I went that day, met a lot of nice people and took a few photos.
I joined the group when I went home and submitted a few of my photos, some old and some new. And surprise surprise, I won.
They gave a Pro flickr account and the responsibility to organize and judge the next competition. Which gives something to worry about outside working hours.
If any of you reading this are in Qatar. Please go to http://www.qatarliving.com/ and join the team, and lets see you in the next photo shoot. It really is not a cutthroat competition, its more of a social gathering.
