Today was the first day of a three day shoot that I'm currently working on in Dubai, and while this wasn't one of the client shots, it was take from one of the locations we visited - the not quite finished Nasa Multiplex. I was shooting from the 82nd floor (at over 300m), and while some of the lower floors are already cladded, this one just had a couple of tubes of scaffolding to stop you walking off the edge :)

Oddly, I'm normally quite afraid of heights, but being this high seemed almost unreal and didn't bother me ... well, not too much at least. By UK standards, 300m is pretty high, but the Burj Dubai (the building between the chains) is over twice as high; i.e. 688m tall. At some point, I'd like to shoot from the top of that one too :)

Anyway, I'll be posting more shots soon (but not tomorrow as I'm working late), but in the meanwhile I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this one.
