Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

Do you have a photo which invites the viewer to look beyond? Are there hidden depths in the background? Is the focal point just a framing for the rest of the picture? If it’s not clear why we should look beyond, tell us!

The moment I read the photochallenge brief, I knew what I wanted to post about. In Oct 2012 we revisited Dubai , a place we called home for three years. In one sense,  Dubai is beyond home for us.

When we left, the latest icon of Dubai and UAE – The Burj Khalifa–  was still under-construction and I was really excited to see it completed (that’s the architect in me speaking). Compound that with the fact that the designers from the office I was working in at that time were involved in the landscape design around the building so I had a heightened level of excitement to see it.

Here are a few pictures that I clicked:

My first sighting of the building was from the plane and I think this picture best fits the Photochallenge brief!

The top of the building as seen from inside the towers’ base! The Building designers had specifically designed the viewing spot for photographers!!

This is the Burj-al- Arab a luxurious seven-star hotel built on an island of its own as seen from the Burj- Khalifa viewing deck. It was synonymous with Dubai until Burj-khalifa ousted it. If you look closely, you can see the Palm Jumeriah Islands behind the Burj-Al-Arab.

Last but not the least, A picture of the Burj Khalifa in its Splendor.
