Black and White Challenge.
My tags say this is from the
Close up of the first image.
Geelong’s Eastern Beach…
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
The scene at
18 mm focal length.
The last three images were taken from
the observation deck on the 148 floor
of the Burj Khalifa.
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
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.

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.
The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.
