Pic(k) of the week 4: EK SUNSET – DUBAI CREEK HARBOUR

One of my favorite places to shoot the Dubai skyline at sunset, is from the grounds of the new Dubai Creek Harbor project; a new waterfront property project on the southeastern shore of the Creek. Since the Dubai Creek Harbour sign has been overshot, I wanted to be...

Pic(k) of the week 3: MEN AT WORK – Street Photography in Deira, Dubai
