A long head on a long neck

Cee’s theme for her Black & White Challenge this week is something long.

Well, a giraffe came to mind – such as this one in the Game Reserve on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Someone to look up to

The headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) on The Corniche is a landmark in Abu Dhabi.

It’s also where I toiled (figuratively speaking) for the last ten years of my working life, the final part of which was spent in an office on the inner side of the left hand tower, somewhere near the bottom of this image. It was on the 23rd floor, so from ground level you’d certainly have to look upwards.

Into the infinite

This colonnade of marble columns at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi seems to go on forever.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Action

After last week’s theme of ‘Rest’ it was only logical that this time Frank would be seeking some ‘Action’ images for his Tuesday Photo Challenge.

This is the display team of the Air Force of the United Arab Emirates in action over Abu Dhabi, as part of the country’s National Day celebrations.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Public Transport

Not all forms of public transport are stressful, commuting nightmares. This is the catamaran which ferries guests from the mainland to Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
