Camera Lucida – Journey

This is in response to the Week #6 Photo Challenge.

Roads in and around “misty” Dubai & “windy” Abu Dhabi when I first arrived last July and so on.  Perhaps not a very picturesque as others but this is the natural way I can show the roads and some Icon buildings that I passed through from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. To be fair, they are all amazing to look at when near but when you are on the roads traveling by car it is harder to get a close up unless you have a professional camera to boost.  I only have a camera phone with me while traveling.  This is just to show my journey.



BURJ KHALIFA in the middle is the tallest building in the World


BURJ AL ARAB means Tower of the Arabs is a luxury 7-star hotel and the 4th tallest hotel in the World

A boots style building (on the way to the City) and a Coin shape (near Yas Island) in Abu Dhabi.  Really unique and amazing to see at night.


Emirates Palace Gate outside is the only way we can do some photo opportunity.  The security guards says “No more public viewing inside the Palace Hotel”  but if you have hotel or restaurant booking then you are most welcome!  But please make sure you have enough money to dare.

AND finally… a journey going to our temporary “home” in Abu Dhabi
