May be he exceeded his limits of 35000 posts and 7 years on this forum.

No more diagrams and sketches.

LOL He must be a great guy indeed for her to spend the entire photo-shoot at his...well...feet I suppose. That golf club in the foreground could be a clue though?!

Very nice pics recently! Haven't been on SSC for a week or so and what I see here is just "Wow!"

Some new pics of BD which I took from the cablecar at Creek Park and from the Rooftop Bar at Four Point Sheraton. You'll find more in my photo thread

Yeah the picture is great, the park looks ridiculously empty tho. Different angle, and we get different Dubai.

Hi Altin.

If it was anyone other than Cul (with a few exceptions of course - you included) it would be forgotten. As it's not please let us know what the poop is.

Maybe was is a better term. I see he is not banned anymore. This is good for this forum if he chooses to still come here.

Some more pics of the Creek Park. My impression is, since quite some people here more or less only check the BD thread they may not realise how green Dubai can be actually

























And a couple of great snapshots IMO... only found out back home
