A Night at the Burj Al Arab

Trey and I headed out to the beach to finish our time in Dubai and it felt a lot more relaxed than the downtown area. We stayed near the Burj Al Arab which is apparently a 7-star hotel, I’m not even sure I understand what that means, do they have extra towels? Maybe higher minibar prices? Who knows. It was fun taking photos along the beach and we even had a few drinks way up there at the Burj Al Arab’s Skyview Bar. It was expensive of course but still totally worth it! YOLO baby!

Atlantis The Palm from a Helicopter

Wow this was amazing! Today we took an open door helicopter flight around Dubai, circling around the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and other amazing buildings, so much fun! I hung my feet out the door, blasted music and went photo crazy! Happy I didn’t drop any lenses from the helicopter, that would have been kinda awkward… We swung by Atlantis The Palm at one point and got a great perspective of the resort, what a project that must have been! OK I will take deep breaths now as I return to planet earth, I really felt like a kid again up there! Thanks to Dubai Films for organizing.

Big Boats at the Dubai Marina

Time for a leisurely stroll down at the Dubai Marina, just me and the ‘tripod police’, haha how romantic! I can’t believe how much energy is put in to stopping people taking photos here in Dubai, aren’t pretty photos of your city a good thing?? Anyway I did manage to take this photo (yay for me!) and I really like it! What a cool spot, I wonder how often these boats leave the marina? Possibly never to answer my own question, owning a big boat is all about owning a big boat, have you seen my big boat? It’s in the Dubai Marina. It’a a big boat.

Under the Burj Khalifa

I’ve been walking around downtown Dubai today taking photos of the Burj Khalifa, it’s fun trying to come up with interesting compositions and also really challenging so I got a little creative with this one. I’m here taking photos for a few days with my pal (and photographer extraordinaire) Trey Ratcliff, let the good times roll!
