One of those catalogs you can't wait to get your hands on and go through it cover to cover.

Art & Culture

One of the many rooms in Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood that is setup to not only show, but give you a feeling of how life used to be here in Dubai. The porportions of the desert and the pasted picture on the wall makes it very interesting.


Some like 'em, some don't. I think their designs fit the needs and taste of a lot of people.

Chelsea Tower


There's more than one way to skin a cat. I chose to make this picture from the outside of Gelato. In case you're wondering, I've deliberately included a hint of Gelato in the photo, it's part of the composition.

The Palace Downtown Dubai


This is not the main entrance, but one of few that leads to the rooms. The pointed arch, which can be seen a lot at The Palace Downtown Dubai, was used in Islamic (and pre-Islamic) architecture, and was later a defining feature of Gothic architecture.

Passing by Baker and Spice, I saw stacked fruit crates of pomegranate and orange. I just had to.

Down at Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard

It's a nice time to walk there, the weather is amazing, lots of diners and cafes to choose from, and of course the views. I passed by this bazaar, which you get to by going down a few steps. The wind tower atop the shops give them the impression of traditional middle-eastern houses. Overlooking the bazaar from where I stood on the walkway was an advantage to get a clear view of the whole bazaar.
