Thanks in advance!
If you can organise a helicopter or a penthouse at the Residences I would take daily pics.

Anyway , hopefully I will have few heli trips soon just need to finalise the deal with someone who needs some pics in different areas

I have been following those closely, but it seems this phase of the project is now picking up rapidly, and I think it would be cool to get some more concentrated documentation of this just for the time being; each day it seems to change so much... but Gerald has a point, this is a job for an ariel team. Any volunteers?

You guessed it. They're actually not that far outside the city. I believe right next to Jumeirah Beach...

Sounds good! Until then I can recommend the upper deck of fashion car park. Or BD residences? Or maybe The Address with a decent lens (200mm +)? Gerald, how did you sneak your SLR onto a terace there? It seems I am always too cautious

Yesterday my wife told me she went to look at a Marina appartment in JBR (Murjan, 43rd floor) with a friend who is interested in moving there. After she told me the doors had been unlocked I went there at night with two cameras and the tripod, found the building, found the floor, found the appartment, heart is pounding and... door locked.

Anyone offer me nice views for good night shots from up above Dubai? I offer you beer galore

Wow, looking good as always.
I like how they are making a Desert city into a garden. It'll be hard but not impossible as long as they develop good irrigation systems

Go to Gold Crest in JLT, take the top floor, go out to the roof, and voila! Nobody will ask a thing, because you are white.
