Hi all.

Nice shots Guest.

Hey all - Ahamedzayad at Picasa has some good shots from the Burj.
Search Burj Dubai.
Look on page 4 and click on his name - he has a few albums with 2 that have shots from the burj. One called Burj Dubai has been linked here a few weeks ago and has many shots from the burj including some from the top of the pinnacle. The new one called Burj Khalifa also has many shots and again some from the top.
It looks to me that this guy works on the festival lighting system.

Picasa has just exploded with Burj pics this month, even more so than Flickr. It will take me weeks to catch up as Picasa is only one stop in my daily rounds. And that doesn't even count searching Burj Khalifa there yet ...

Good luck Furry for saving the photos , you need a big hard disk if you want to save all

OTR: That too, but I haven't seen such stickers lately. The novelty wore off, or I just aren't out and about as much as I used to be?

Guest89: There was indeed fog yesterday and around 2:30 PM it was almost impossible to see anything but an hour later it was gone, atleast on the downtown area.

Maybe you are right. I live in the Jumeirah area and from my house it seemed foggy after 6 that is why I thought it was pointless to go, but thank you for proving me wrong. Your pics were beautiful!

2 more from 4:30pm today.25/January/2010. Long Distance.

Altin, stickers on cars now but made of material that destroys if you try to exchange onto another vehicle.

Hell knows how I get them, they just turn up in the courier.

Expect same VIP stickers for BK
