A vibrant and live city, Dubai !

I remember coming to this city on early 2000, right above the immigration counter there was a quote “It takes generations to build a city, we are doing it in less than one”

It is remarkable to see how they city was developed in few years to this level.

The credit for making this remarkable city, without any doubt goes to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In his own word he says., “Dubai will never settle for anything less than first place.” He further adds, “Most people talk; we do things. They plan; we achieve. They hesitate; we move ahead. We are living proof that when human beings have the courage and commitment to transform a dream into reality, there is nothing that can stop them.”

A Steel City

The cloudy sky telling us the story the imending rain or rain refuse to come down. Tall buildings made of steel, glass and cement. Standing all prepare to welcome to rain and casting its majestic reflection of the waterfront. This is Sharjah Skyline shot form Khan Corniche.

“The materials of city planning are: sky, space, trees, steel and cement; in that order and that hierarchy.” Le Corbusier
