Dark Dubai

Keeping with the Dubai theme, these two photographs were taken in that hot, extravagant emirate on the same day, just a few minutes apart – they were shot in broad daylight. I’ve edited them to look a little surreal, somewhat abstract… they have the feeling of model kits to me, rather than genuine, giant skyscrapers. The lighting is all genuine.

What did these images teach me?

First and foremost they taught me that (once again) scanning through the archive is always a good thing to do! They also taught me the benefit of applying the same editing process to multiple images can be its own reward – developing something close to a consistent style (just don’t expect it to last!)
