Postcard from the Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Here’s something you wouldn’t ordinarily expect from me. It’s a cityscape I captured tonight in the Gulf city of Dubai, featuring the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It’s taken from the balcony of two Pakistani friends of mine – what an incredible view to have from one’s own balcony, eh?!

Burj Khalifa, Dubai – The world’s tallest building


I’m currently stopping off in Dubai, en route between an assignment for HelpAge International in Thailand (check out my album of images from that here) and the United States. These past few days, I’ve been working on the desk-based portion of my work for HelpAge and also starting what I’m calling my ‘Summer of Conversations’. This is essentially a big networking and business development drive, and I’ll be continuing it during the next couple of months in the USA.

So for several weeks at least, it’s big cities for me! Hence, the unusual image. I hope you like it.
