I know what it feels like to be up early in the morning, the way the buildings are colder and stronger, the way the steam dances out of the street and off the chimneys of roofs so pure and innocent, untouched by the pollution of the day’s bullshit and congestion. I love that peaceful handoff, the glowing clock of night dimmed and sleepy passing on time to the sunrise of day. The bar flies finishing the last swig of beer, drunkenly caught between yesterday and today, already smelling of tomorrow’s disasters, hazily lost in this seamless transition that has been happening for an eternity. How small we are. How worried we get around the details of our seconds and the price of the ground we stand on. Just look at the sunrise and you will feel like one lucky soul in a moment that is already gone, floating on a place we call earth, that little blue dot among a whole universe of wonder…
Have a peaceful winter weekend
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, built with materials from around the world, is approximately the size of 5 football fields and can hold up to 40,000 worshippers under its 82 domes. Standing on top of the world’s largest carpet and underneath the world’s largest chandelier is an awe inspiring moment of peace and beauty.
The guys over at Puma took us to view The Burj Khalifa in Dubai…. It took 5 photographs for me to fit this little baby into 1!
