Sweeping

The BurJuman Centre is one of the oldest shopping malls in Dubai, and features a couple of grand sweeping staircases, with elements of Art Deco. This is a view taken from the ground floor, looking up to the balcony and ceiling above. The image is almost abstract and works quite well in black & white, I think.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

What could be more appropriate for this week’s theme of ‘Connected’ than a wedding?

I’m very happy to say that I took this photograph last Saturday at my son’s wedding. Stealing the show between the bride and groom is their much-loved dog.

Abstract shadows

Palm trees cast long shadows across a path in Hili Oasis, near Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, producing the illusion of depth in an abstract image that makes me think of something a space probe might send back from the surface of a distant planet. (Although that’s probably just me.)
