The Burj Dubai looks amazing from the air, it looks bigger that in the last pictures taken from the air.

Oh Shoot !

Did you find it back ?

Well, that's a good pretext to buy a new one .

(to me digicams are disposables: they pay for themselves by the saving in film, and they progress so quick it's good to change them once every 3-5 years )

Imre, tell your sister that I say that those are great pictures!


Also, what is getting built on the right of the burj on those pictures? On the giant circle that I suppose is going to be surrounded by water?

I also wanted to ask, what is that blue thing with the "10" on it? It looks like a dumpster for high rises.

Hi all.
- I believe the blue boxes are places for the cranes to set stuff onto.

Wow - go away for 4 days and 10 new pages in here ( great place to discuss skyscrapers! ) and all over the web, 179 new pics for my database - Woohoo!
Here is some of the good ones that aren't from Imre and Joobn - Thanx for your contributions guys.

Picasa - I forget the photogs - too many to remember in my old age

07 04 08


07 05 11


07 05 15


07 06 06


07 06 07


07 06 08




Webshots - Bishan2010 - 07 06 15




Picasa - 07 06 16


Oh - I did some research on the tower in the Towering Inferno - it was 138 levels. They used a huge model for filming - must have been 50 feet high. For info see here.

Have a good day all - Enjoy
