In 2022, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa,

at 830 metres / 2723 feet

from ground to tip… 

 

is still the world’s tallest building.

The Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai stands

 828 meters or 2,716.5 feet tall.

 

Whereas the Shard, a relatively new tower in London,

is only 309.6 metres or 1,016 feet tall.

tall

of great or more than average height,
especially (with reference to an object)
relative to width
 

~~~~~

At 2,716 feet high, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa,

in my opinion, rates as tall.

 

 

Using my 18-253 mm focal length Sigma lens

at 250 mm focal length

 

 

At 52 mm focal length about

the same as the human eye.

18 mm focal length.

The last three images were taken from

the observation deck on the 148 floor

of the Burj Khalifa.

The Dubai Mall Fountain and

its surrounding buildings are

fairly high, until observed from…

…from the dizzying heights of the Burj Khalifa’s

124th-floor observation deck.

The outdoor observation deck on the

Burj Khalifa’s 124th, of 148 floors, is 1,483 ft high.

 

Looking down from that height it appears

that visitors are looking down on a toy town. 

The photographer kept telling her subjects to

move closer to the edge.

I think the Burj Al Arab is

a fantastic design both

in and outside.

In comparison, the Burj Khalifa is just plain huge.

The geometrical pattern on the exterior of Melbourne’s

National Gallery of Australian Art…

…exacerbating Melbournian’s love/hate relationship

with the building.

 

Prior to the 2006 Commonwealth Games

being held in Melbourne,

Spencer St Railway Station was renovated

and modernised.

Its most notable feature is the waves and arches

which now support a similarly shaped roof.

It was also renamed Southern Cross Station.

 

Around the corner, Flinders Street Station remains

as it was at the beginning of the twentieth century.

To change the exterior facade of

Flinders St would cause a public outcry…

…similar to the outcry when the Flinders Street

clock faces were digitised.

Public backlash forced local authorities

to change the clocks back to analogue faces

with digital workings.

Now Melbournians and visitors alike

are still able to meet under the

Flinders Street clocks as they

have done for many, many decades.

All images were taken with…

Camera: Nikon D90

Lens:  Sigma 18-253mm

Focal Length: 18mm

Dubai’s, Burj Khalifa.

***

On the 148th floor is the

public observation deck

from where the following set

of images were taken.

Focal Length: 250mm

At 250mm we are looking at part of a building,

the size of which can only be estimated.

 

Focal Length: 52mm

At 52mm it appears reasonably tall

and on par with its neighbours.

Focal Length: 18mm

At 18mm we can see that the building is

of average size when a

neighbourhood comparison is made.

However, we can also observe that all

of these six buildings are comparatively tiny

when we take in the height of the camera.

The arrow indicates building

in the first image.

Looking up to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

Can you see how the concrete in

the middle foreground of this image,

(bottom) looks a bit like a kidney bowl?

My first image…looking up…was taken

while walking along that area.

A giant bicycle wheel?

The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.

 

Ben does not appear that big from atop the Eye.

All that aside, whether day or night

the Sky Tower

provides excellent views of the

Auckland Harbour Bridge.
