While Dubai is famous for it's rather large buildings, malls, and indoor ski resort, some of my favourite places to visit are the souks (or markets). These are located on either side of the creek and you can cross between the two on an abrah (a small wooden dhow).

When I was there in 2008 I took this shot, a portrait of one of the many old guys who spend their days sitting and chatting in the markets. When we went back there this year he was there again, just round the corner from where I photographed him last year.

I have another three portraits from the same trip that I'll post at some point soon.
