The photographer mentioned that the date of taking this shot was on January, 14, 2011... In january, 2011, the CBK building was Just reaching its half height and Alhamra tower was still having its two cranes on the top of it...
This photo was taken recently, but I don't know about the fake sky
Anyways, Almasoud's works are so creative and beautiful...

I can clearly see the picture was taken at sunset or morning because of the shadow of the buildings, and the clouds look quite shiny from above. Well that's only my opinnion.

I don't want to start a discussion about this so

From Mark's blog 248AMhttp://www.248am.com/mark/kuwait/al-hamra-tower-screen/




The large screen outside Al Hamra Tower was on as I passed by probably being tested out.
Last week I noticed the tower lights were being tested out and the whole building was blinking and changing colors. Is it normal that every tower popping up in Kuwait now has it’s own light show taking place at night?
