You have to wait for some time. They have just left a certain European port on a cargo ship ... and I think they managed to stuck them without the need to cut them in half.

BTW, I think I saw all the three cranes operating on the plot again which, if my eyes didn't played a trick, will mean they were just repositioned as I said earlier.

All three are operating but in the same positions. Internal ones will remain and climb, external one is temporary.

mmmh... that sounds as if Imre got exclusive rights for Pentominium photos on SSC. Maybe another Dubai forumer can visit the site!?

mostly true for this thread: if I haven't overlooked something, the last pictures by a different photographer than Imre (scoot68) were put here by malec almost a year ago!

Dubai Marina isn't the favourite place for most of Dubai forum photographers for a number of reasons.

Why Altin, is it to far. I know Imre lives on the other site of the highway at Marina. He said once in the appartment buildings which he lives in is a pool on the top. And he makes photo's from there, you can see the Marina very well.

The distance is one of the reasons, the UAE forum conflict of 2006 is another.

Basically, the Marina is a freehold area and the UAE forum became full of investors who bought on those towers and they weren't really appreciative of the time and efforts of the enthusiast photographers ... in the sense they were practically demanding photos instead of thanking us for taking those. Abusing of our pictures for commercial gains by real-estate agents and companies is another.

Another reason is that the threads turned from enthusiast hang-outs as those in this section still are, to investors discussing their curtain choices and later on everything related to money matters. We enthusiasts have been often ridiculed by them, so slowly we lost interest even in visiting those threads.
