Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa Tower…

…and a view of downtown Dubai from the 

Observation Deck on the 148th floor (555 m or 1,821 ft).

This was the highest observation deck in the world

on October 15, 2014, until the

Shanghai Tower opened in June 2016.

Eiffel Tower, Paris.

Tuesday-PC-Wk144_Bank

~~~~~~

 

I’m being a rebel this week and not walking a bank…

but photographing one.

Images are not so good..my apologies…but you get the idea.

Tourists or locals?

whichever, it was a great way to spend our last evening in…

 

Paris.

Week 118

Diminutive

Taking photos from this angle…

makes a photographer feel…

diminutive.

 

From the second level of the Eiffel Tower

this roof top looks rather large

with the lens on full zoom.

Reducing the zoom and the same roof top

almost disappears into the city of Paris.

 

Think the Eiffel Tower at 324 metres (1,063 feet) is tall?

Wait until you visit Dubai’s the Burj Khalifa.

At 828 metres (2,717 feet), the Burj Khalifa

is the tallest building in the world.

 

It is taller than two Empire State Buildings

and is nearly 700 feet taller than the Shanghai Tower,

the current second-tallest building.

Even on a hazy day it still made many…

of Dubai’s skyscrapers appear tiny.

Travel Theme.

As we entered Paris last year…

even a shot through the coach window

was worth capturing.

 

 However, the near we came…

to the Eiffel Tower

 

the more awesome it looked.

We were in Paris!

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Over

The last group activity we undertook in Paris

was a cruise on the River Seine.

The Eiffel Tower was lit up as we

commenced our cruise…

However, when we returned it had

changed colours and the white lights

were bidding us goodbye.

Our time in Paris was over.

for this photo opportunity.
