Was that a coincident or did you know that he would be there?

I knew he was there - I'd been shooting him all morning!

Hi all.

Hi Jonny.
I think you meant the residents lounge on level 123.

Hi Gerald.
A great shot man.
The lighting shows the different diameters of the pinnacle tiers and the splice in tier 30 nicely.
Oh, the moon in the shot looks cool too ...


Ray.

Great shots from anyone; i wonder to see in the movie next week how many scenes are taken in Burj Khalifa, except those known ones of Tom Cruise.
