The Wind Tower

Cee’s theme for this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge is ‘Hot and/or Cold’. Here is an image that encapsulates both. This is a wind tower in al-Bastakiya – what’s left of the old part of Dubai. It works on the principle of drawing in the desert breezes at the top and funneling them down to provide a cooler draught at ground level. Air-conditioning, in other words.
