Oh, ok. I haven't assumed the first answer will be the smartest one. But serously, why pictures from out of this forum seems to be not wellcomed here? And even if, what that has to do with flickr?

Hi Gerald.
Flickr.
WONDERS OF CIVIL account.
Looks like there is another of yours there also.
15 BK shots there - all appropriated by the looks of them.

Anyone have any news on handovers ?
Kinda feel empty with no technical topics to discuss anymore ...........
Hopefully more info and shots will hit the net as people move in.
There sure aren't as many Armani hotel shots as I would have expected.

I was just looking through the older threads of the BD/BK, and found this in part number 12:

Man, can we make an exception and allow 1000 posts for Burj threads? It's going to literally be on the 30th+ thread by the time this tower is halfway complete .
this is actually the 30th thread (and has a little bit more than 1000 posts!), and when this was started, it was about halfway complete. (the structure was at 575m, but the windows had only just started.)

just a random thing I noticed.

the whole area is starting to look better now that the landscaping is being done, and there is some green.
I still can't get my head around the fact that The Address hotel is 300m high, because it look small in the photos. I guess the Jin Mao will look small with Shanghai Tower though, so it's all relative. here in Christchurch a 100m building would look huge!

Yes I saw it too,, I thought it was yours as that location is unique, the angle of the sun and the way in which was taken.

Actually we should ban all flick photos reposted on SSC,, they where threatening us,, now their users are reposting our stuff on their site.

LMAO

P.S I really woundn't borrow one of Gerald's image these days as he now is in professional communication with some of UAE Goverment Departments.. So any agency/person that re-uses any image could face jail for theft.

Go easy on the guy. He may be an idiot but he doesn't look like a thief.

Hi All – Yes, believe it or not but this car is for real! Call it dumb luck, but I stumbled upon this beauty on my last night in Dubai. Here’s a little blurb about the car….

It's either chromed or most probably only foil wrapped, which costs much less then the real thing and it can be removed.

Imagine this car coming towards you, and the sun is behind your back. You are definitely going to be blinded.
