Photographer's Note

Taken whilst on a dhow (traditional wooden boat) along Dubai Creek.

In the foreground are working dhow boats.

In the background is Bastakiya - the oldest residential area of Dubai. Amongst the narrow lanes. courtyards and historical houses you can see a mosque and several tall wind towers - these wind towers are a traditional form of air cooling. Before the days of mains electricity and air-conditioners they funnelled cold air into the houses.
