00:21am (London time)

Far off in this darkness
Glitters a fire that I can not see
For I am looking at the wrong end
Looking for an hand to guide me

Concealed beneath the initial impressions
Are things I wish to ignore
Cause I'm so full of myself
That everything else seems a blur

So I pretend to stand at a place
Where I can choose to lose it all
Where I can pray to keep it all
And I'm still lying to myself

I was in love with all these mirages
They're all I want to believe they were
But I couldn't see the devil hidden within
While shines a fire that no one can see

Exit where???

This is a combo shot where I have copy pasted the sign board from a shot taken at a different exposure but of the same scene and pasted it on this image. 

Shooting Date/Time : 3/7/2009 4:47:23 PM
Tv(Shutter Speed) : 1/640
Av(Aperture Value) : 8.0
Metering Mode : Center-Weighted Average Metering
ISO Speed : 100
Lens : EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Focal Length : 10.0 mm

BTW if you refer to the post 'Tired' I made earlier you might note that I was trying to get my hands on an ultra wide lens(tokina 11-16mm f2.8). Well after being out bid I decided to get the lens from UK(without warranty) but then realised I could spend the same amount of money locally to buy a Canon 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 instead(as the tokina costs more in the UK). So I bought the lens from the ultra friendly sales person from micro digital computers at Deira City Centre(ground floor) on thursday who offered it to me at a great price with local warranty...

Note: not sure if this is going to be my last post before I leave so just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm headed off to UK on the 13th for exactly 2 weeks to attend my graduation ceremony and sightseeing. Going with my friends so hopefully we'll have a lot of fun...Inshallah!!!
