I'm sure we all go to and through SZR. But when was the last time you walked down Dubai's main boulevard looking for photo opportunities, instead of running to a meeting? Come along for the chance to try your hand at street photography (including pictures of people), plant macros, traffic trails, shop windows, and of course shots of the buildings that make up the skyline. One of the best things about photo walks is finding out how different people look at the same spaces!
We can meet in front of the Fairmont. If you're using the metro, go to the World Trade Center station on the red line and cross the highway. If you're driving, there's usually space near the H Hotel (formerly the Monarch), across the street from the Trade Center. Parking is free on Fridays.
My plan is to start walking south - in the direction of the Crowne Plaza and Shangri La - at 5:40. If you're running late, just walk that way until you see us. The end time is only a suggestion. Whenever you get tired, you can take the metro home or to your car.
A tripod will be handy if you plan to keep shooting well after sunset (6:17 PM). I'd also recommend bringing along water.
