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 […]

Wow! Amazing and beautiful travel photography of Dubai! Love the colours of the sunrise:)

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 […]

Hey!

Really love the view you got from your hotel! I will be going to Dubai next month and am looking to find some rooftop views such as this in the downtown area.

Would you mind letting me know what hotel you stayed at and if the roof is easily accessible?

Many thanks,
Ash

Hello Ash, I stayed at the Four Points on Sheikh Zayed Road. There is a bar on the hotel roof so easy to get up there and take your time taking pictures as the sun sets.

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 […]

Blue Pool – London, England

The “Pool of London” is the area around Tower Bridge where the merchants, back in the day, would dock and unload their goods ready to transport in to the city markets. Nowadays it is a symbol of politics and capitalism, and a little phallic

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 […]

Panorama from Galata Tower – Istanbul, Turkey

The top of the Galata Tower has a very narrow gangway around its edge. When I first stepped out, I did feel a little nervous holding on to the railing as it appeared unstable. You can walk all the way around and take a 360 panorama, which I did do. I also choose two of […]
