30 incredible images of Dubai you've never seen before
Think you’ve seen every angle of Dubai? Prepare to be proven wrong.August 21, 2014
When it comes to having its picture taken, Dubai is a bit of a poser.
Wether you live in the emirate or you're just a regular visitor, the chances are you have at least one image on your phone of the Burj Al Arab at sunset, with the sea glistening in the background and a paddle boarder drifting into view. It’s probably a great photo, one that people compliment you on. And it’s probably a mirror image of one that your friend took a week before, and your other friend a week later.
You see the problem with Dubai being such a photographic place is that everyone has the same snaps of the same sights. Show a resident a photo of you in front of the Burj Khalifa and the most enthusiastic response you can expect is “Oh yeah, that’s good” – as they wonder how long you struggled trying to fit the entire building into shot.
