One of the things I love most about photographing Dubai (and the wider UAE) is these huge developments that I see being built over many years. I tend to photograph them under construction for various clients and then all of a sudden they’re ready and you can actually photography the final product. The same applies to Bluewaters Island, a huge newly reclaimed island which I’ve captured a few times over the last few years while it was being built – my favourite photograph from the construction phase would be this one, taken about 4 years ago.
Now that the island is open, pretty much anyone that has a view towards the sea in that area would like to update their photography as the huge Dubai Eye Ferris Wheel is a site you cannot ignore (and you can probably put your prices up just because you have a view towards it – such are the times we live in). So I’ll leave you with this image photographed this week of the completed island, although the wheel is not yet finished.
