Dubai’s waterways

Abras on #Dubai #Creek, #UAE – The #Abras are the traditional boats used in Dubai for crossing the Dubai Creek. They are connecting the two two main areas of Dubai – #Deira with its souks and traditional markets, and #BurDubai with #downtown Dubai and the city’s modern development in the last decades. Definitely worth a trip taking an abra to cross the creek and explore both sides of the city!

The #Dubai #Marina in Dubai, #UAE at #night – An amazing place to visit day or night, with its artificial #canal running through an area of several towers and villas along the #Persian gulf, just south of downtown Dubai. The Dubai Marina is definitely a place you want to visit while in Dubai, to go shopping or simply for dining & nightlife!

Times Square at night

42nd Street at the famous #TimesSquare in #Manhattan, #NewYork City – A place that truly never sleeps: where you will see flashing lights everywhere, yellow cabs stuck in traffic, tourists taking pictures and probably one of the few places on earth where you can go shopping literally all around the clock. While New Yorkers try to avoid this place, it’s something you have to see at least once in your life!

Long Island City views

#LongIslandCity (LIC) is a neighborhood is #Queens, #NewYorkCity that used to be an industrial hub within #NewYork. It has been redeveloped over the past decade and now features lots of galleries and high-rise buildings with amazing views on #Manhattan, though here & there you can still find old, abandoned industrial complexes that show the roots of this up & coming area.

The Vessel at night

Inside #TheVessel just after #sunset – During my visit to this new structure in the heart of the #Hudson #Yards in #Manhattan, I was amazed by the planning and work of the architect Thomas Heatherwick. Just seeing how the structure reflects the light of the sunset and plays with the illumination of the city in the background was nothing less of impressive!

London Tower Bridge

The beautiful and #iconic #Tower #Bridge in #London at night – had to take this shot during one of my last trips to the #UK, watching tourists, traffic and the typical red buses cross this old lady. Tower Bridge was build in the 1890’s, and even more than a century later it is still as beautiful as it was on its first day.
