Photos of Outdoor Pool on Tier 7l?

Do we have any photos of the outdoor pool under construction on the Tier 7 terrace sitting on top of floor 75?

I've asked several times before without response. I've tried to spot it in some of the aerial shots but am never quite sure what I'm looking at.

Just curious what it's going to look like...what shape it is...how deep is it, etc?

Great pics, Imre!

I also took some pics today until the battery was dead. Now I can't find the charger and I can't even get the images transfered to my laptop I'm afraid no shop in Dubai (like Grand Stores Digital or Sharaf DG) sells the necessary charger in case I won't be able to find it (might have forgotten it in Germany) Maybe somebody knows a decent store? (The battery is Nikon EN-EL3)

Germantower asked me in the Business Bay thread for a large version of my HDR from yesterday's sunset



Here it is in 2000 x 1118px

Thanks for the offer, Imre

I'll keep on searching tomorrow and will check with Sharaf DG on SZR. If all that doesn't work out I might get back to you

Grand Stores are the Nikon dealers so if you're looking for them you can find only there. Sharaf DG sells compatible chargers though, so you can get lucky there as well.

PS. Don't tell me your PC/laptop does not have a Memory Card reader, or is yours not a SD/MMC?

I could live with a compatible charger, since I just found out on Amazon that the original charger is about four times the price of a noname product. My laptop doesn't have a card reader for CompactFlash. Ok, external card readers are cheap, but I want to take pictures... wanted to drive around tonight and already am a bit frustrated. So instead I'm having a beer. Well, maybe two

Hi all.

Thanks Gerald.

I have much info on the apollo project. I started collecting info many years ago as one of my first internet info saving endeavers. I am a bit of a history buff on many subjects - space travel being one of them. I never thought about the manhours of the apollo project. Billions - holy smokes ...

Library.

I think Dec 2 '09 is a soft opening for the hotel and the hotel entrance side oo the podium. A few people on here have talked to people involved and they say Dec is unreasonable for the whole of the works to be completed. We may or may not get another press release stating this knowing Emaar. The cranes will be gone before Dec anyway IMO.

It's too bad we can't get a list of what is sold and what is not for the whole structure including the offices. It would be nice to know both before the full opening and after.
