Dubai Sunset

A beautiful sunset in Dubai. Announcing the arrival of winter in here.

 

Alster Lake in Hamburg

agstd-9

It was created as early as the 13th century by damming the little Alster river and its even smaller feeder rivers. Its opulent grasslands on the edge of the bank offer plenty of opportunities to be close to the water, right in the middle of the city. Just kicking back on a blanket or a deckchair, jogging “all the way round the Alster”, taking a walk, playing frisbee and boules – the options are endless for you to enjoy this splendid green oasis on land. During some winters, you will even be able to make your way across the lake to the other bank without getting your feet wet. Naturally, the Alster is surrounded by cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal or drink with a splendid view of the water.

Yesterday and Tomorrow

“Yesterday and tomorrow cross and mix on the skyline. The two are lost in a purple haze. One forgets, one waits.”
Carl Sandburg

 

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
