Hi EPZ family,

Hope you all doing well as weekend is closing up. Thanks for your votes and c&c's on my previous upload. Glad that many of you did like the sky process in PS. anyone needs a tip on how to do that kind of process just go to YouTube and search for sky swap in Photoshop.

It's weekend in UAE, my wife went to her hometown and she'll be back tomorrow. Her aunt is diagnosed with a brain tumor and the Doctors said that she stands no chance to get well...

It's a cruel world ay, I leave it up to God's wisdom and decision with some helps from Doctors...

It's a strange feeling to spend the weekend all alone with computer and TV. Cleaned everywhere, removed dusts, tiled the ground did some washing, Ironing and mixed some chicken breast in onion, tomato, potato added salt, black pepper, yogurt, some hot spices let it get juicy and then put them in pirex plate, first tomato slices then the chicken breasts then potato and added some tomato juice on top put it in oven and now it's cooked. So I am going to eat it now. Pity you are not here. I know you would have eaten your fingers... Wink

Another shot from China. enjoy and stay safe

Regards to you and your loved ones and don't forget to pray for my wife's aunt, she has two lovely daughters of 9 and 14...

So sorry to hear about your Aunt.
This is wonderful - incredibly unsafe by our standards, but he's at least strapped into that small deckchair.
Splendid processing

I am so very saddened to hear your shocking news
My thoughts are with your and your family

Your family is in my prayers

Hello Astiag.
Sorry to hear about the aunt. Godd bless her.
I love this streetscene. Good but unusual crop.
Just reading, you live in the UAE ? I spent there 5 years, comming and going, for different project in Oil/Gas business in the 80/ 90 years.
Life was good, reminding the breaks, haha
Cheers from Jan
