You know you live in a rich area when your cop cars are worth over $100k…each. Here we see a picture of Dubai’s police force in amazing cars such as the Lamborghini Aventador. The whole fleet includes types like the: Chevy Camaro SS, Ferrari FF, Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin One-77, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Ford Mustang GT, and BMW M6. All of which are used for patrol. Tough life for these cops huh? Must make that job pretty appealing. The thought is that since there is so much wealth in the area, most people can afford these types of cars or types that could handle extreme speeds. I think Dubai may have had to employee these vehicles in order to just keep pace in a chase. Nevertheless, it is a high price to pay for law enforcement.
It is interesting to believe that by 2020 there will be a new worlds tallest building that actually will trump this one. We see in this photo that only the tallest buildings in Dubai can be seen above the clouds and the fog on what appears to be an early morning. The light that we see coming up is undoubtedly from the levels of light pollution from the city below. All of the buildings in the city are of significant height, however, the ones that we can see actually tower all the rest. Each tall spire that is reaching toward the rest of the universe is lit up like a beacon of hope for a dark world. Just one mans opinion, but this looks very calm and serene up from this view. Under the clouds one can expect commotion, horns, sirens, tv’s blaring, and lots of talking. Up here it is peaceful, quiet and majestic.
This week we will look at Dubai in many different images. The city and area has been quite eerie in the past few years as alot of the buildings have been empty and unfinished. Though it is starting to pick up the city still provides eerie pictures thanks to its geographic conditions as well as its out of the box architecture. The city as a whole contains some of the worlds most impressive architecture. For photographers and vista lovers the area has become an area that is very desired to visit by many. It is serene and beautiful. As you can see by this picture of the current that is heading in to shore, the picturesque views and vistas are absolutely calming. This week we will see many different images from this area of the world.
As we are all recovering from the many July 4th Fireworks displays that took place yesterday, I stumbled across this image that in my mind absolutely trumps even the best one i have ever seen. This image may be one of the best capture images of the Burj Dubai Tower on New Years Eve, shortly after its opening. The tower is lit up and shines as a beacon over the city. It is a beacon of power, prominence, and hope for the regions future. This and many others like it are magnificent representations of the power that fireworks release. Such brilliant light and vibrant colors. I encourage you to search out additional pictures.
