At day’s end in the city, with a eye to the sea in the distance.
I was able to get this shot on a not so fantastic day of the Maiden Tower in Uskudar – Istanbul.
Just what is the Dubai Marina? Well, it is a lot of things: water, canals, apartments, hotels, people and shops. Dubai is famous for having the tallest building in the world and the biggest flag. Apparently, Dubai Marina is the biggest marina in the world and is expected to house 120,000 people when it is finished. Yes, there are marinas at Dubai Marina. And they cater for regulars as well as visitors where possible. The Arabian Gulf is often smooth, but it can be surprisingly rough when certain winds blow. Little of this touches you in the Marina. There are four marinas offering different experiences from the exclusive to the more chummy approach and providing for yachts from 8-50 meters. The marinas are under the control of a management team that works hard to cater to the needs of its members.
Before sunrise at “The Bridge”…
La Isla Bonita
Inside the main building at Ellis Island. The structure of stone, glass and steel is awesome. I can only hope that I have captured some of it’s strength and beauty.
