Dubai Metropolis

    Newer Older

    The Business Bay Executive Towers in Dubai.

    Reminds me of a great quote from the 1927 film classic, Metropolis:

    ""We shall build a tower that will reach to the stars!" Having conceived Babel, yet unable to build it themselves, they had thousands to build it for them. But those who toiled knew nothing of the dreams of those who planned. And the minds that planned the Tower of Babel cared nothing for the workers who built it. The hymns of praise of the few became the curses of the many - BABEL! BABEL! BABEL! - Between the mind that plans and the hands that build there must be a Mediator, and this must be the heart."

      how is this an "incredible shot"? it's blurry, out of focus and noisy. The buildings are nice - sure, but it takes little talent to take a photo such as this.
