In Focus

She was determined to capture the atmosphere in front of Dubai’s impressive Burj Khalifa.

To be more specific, the lady in the photograph above was filming while walking around the open space facing the Burj, in an attempt to capture every aspect of the building and its surroundings with her eyes fixated on the display of her camera. She clearly was on a mission there: one could sense her purpose.

I do not have to tell you that the Burj Khalifa is gigantic and therefore interesting as such (particularly if you know about the various complications during its construction). However – as followers of this blog might have guessed – I was more interested in the diverse bunch of visitors of the site than Dubai’s latest architectural gem.

I had a blast observing the visitors desperately trying to capture this seriously tall tower (burj means tower). Artistic moves included.

    Very nice photo. You may not have noticed but the shoes of the woman in the burka and the other shoes around her make a very nice composition in itself.

      Thanks for your nice comment. I appreciate it! And, yes, you are right! I will have a look at this again, thanks.

        You have some really nice photographs. My eye goes to differences. Because of the limits on what women can wear in public, shoes could be a differentiating feature. Thanks for liking my photo and it is great to follow yours. I’ll look forward to learning more.

    great capture ! besides the photograph per se, there certainly is a gentle elegance about this lady – her stance….the mystical mid-east !

    I have no idea how you captured this woman’s beauty and strength, but you did. All we see is her hands and eyes. Yet I feel that she is stunning. You’re gifted! Please visit blogs. I would love your opinion.
