Our current Photo of the Week is by Muna Hamid.  He is 21 and he studies Economics, Finance and Spanish at the University of Technology, Sydney.

To take this image Muna used a Canon 1000D with the standard EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens - his parents bought him the camera after he finished the HSC.

Muna mostly photographs the places he is fortunate to visit around the world, and is beginning to experiment with his creative flair and carving out a style for himself.
