Dubai Metro Stations – Dubai, UAE

The transportation system in Dubai is reliable enough. I tired taxis, buses and the metro. The drivers of the taxis and buses are suicidal. Taxis drivers may or may not choose to take you to your destination. If they don’t want to go where you want to go, they will make an excuse up such […]

The Dubai Marina – Dubai, UAE

There are many marinas in Dubai, but only one “Dubai Marina”. It was purposefully built as a housing complex, which sounds like a socialist statement, it is not. It is a big oblong shaped area with a pool of water, from the sea, in the middle and privately built skyscraper apartments around the outside. I […]

Waiting for sunset – Dubai, UAE

It’s 7am, haven’t slept since arriving the day before, just finished sunrise images of the Burj al Arab. Next photo set? Sunset of the Burj al Arab, 11 hours from now. Damn! What to do… Go to Madinat Jumeirah, which is just down the road – Grab this shot on the way. See the security […]

Burj al Arab at Sunrise – Dubai, UAE

Dubai is GMT+4 and my brain and body was still at UK time, 1am in the morning. I lay there contemplating what to do, try and get some sleep or stay up and get a taxi at 5am for a sunrise shot. I opted to drink all the coffee in the room and plan a […]

View of Downtown Dubai Skyscrapers – UAE

I had not planned on visiting the Deira/Dubai Creek or Dubai city centre area. It did not have the architecture or city views that I was looking for on this travel photography trip. The explosion of buildings in the last 10 years has occurred in downtown Dubai, primarily the Business Bay area. So I booked […]

One Lime Street – London, England

The iconic Lloyd’s of London building has been photographed so many ways at such varied angles that getting a unique view is near on impossible. Including this one. I would have liked the external lifts to have some motion blur, but taking this on a Sunday, that wasn’t going to happen

Bank Of England & The Royal Exchange – London, England

The Royal Exchange has an atypical lighting when it gets dark. When the down lights are first turned on, they are green and then turn an aqua colour as the lights warm up. They look great when balanced with the orange glow of the tungsten lights on the outside and helps it stand out from […]

Tower Bridge & The Shard – London, England

For architecture photography, they say you should use a Tilt Shift lens. So I bought one and it arrived today. These are taken with the “Canon TS-E 24mm F3.5L II”. They may not appear any different to a normal city photo, at first glance. There are no converging verticals and there is less ground, more […]

No Entry – Hagia Sophia

“Sorry, your names not down your not coming in!” This fellow was just sitting there, guarding the gate. I was so intrigued, what was the great thing he was guarding? It looks so shiny. I want to see! When you walk around Istanbul you will notice immediately, or over time, the quantity of cats roaming […]
