Ian - very nice - how do you get that old colour negative print look?


Through a polaroid preset in VCSO and some tweaks in LR4.

This is more representative of the Middle East..



Yep, no nieces or aunts.

Anyway, this is a photo forum. If you have a case to make, make it in photos. I'd love to see your pictures of Dubai as one rarely gets an inside view into a very different society.

Seriously, it would be fascinating and an interesting counterpoint to Phil's work.

Fursan, so your first couple of posts here on FM you start by arguing with everyone regarding the topics and merits of their photos? Take it easy my friend I prefer Phil's take on Dubai much better than I see in touristic brochures.

That's the nature of Dubai, and most Gulf states for that matter. The working force is foreign and the cultural (even political) barriers makes taking photos of locals extremely difficult. He's not claiming that his photos are reflective of the city, he's just documenting another perspective of the city.

"The Middle East is country of traditions. Deep

Then my friend, ask the person who introduced a political statement in a photographic forum in the first instance.
I note from your ' name ' that you could be from the Hijaz. Documenting another part of the city..Has he documented another.

It won't work here. What won't work here. Few posts yes, but that does not stop me from challenging inaccurate writings or to ask for clarification. ' The argument from Abraham ' works with me everywhere, maybe it does not where you live.

Haven't looked at the X100/X100s thread for some time, so decided to take a peek. Very interesting documentary and apt remarks from Russia. The street shots from Dubai were great as well.

I also agree with the basic rule that politics and religion should generally be avoided in forums -- for evident reasons.

By the way... does anyone know the going rate for a barrel of crude oil these days?

I am sorry to have ruffled some feathers.
Someone, not me , made a political statement.

None of you objected to that. When I put forward a contrary view... You guys could not get inline to take me to task.

See who started with an argumentative statement.

My images of the region are available
In other forums.

Thank you.

You haven't ruffled too many feathers, Fursan, but the paraphrased 'if you don't like it here, go home' statement is a little long in the tooth and a sweeping statement. Indeed, many would probably wish it was a statement that could be politically correct and mentioned in their own home countries, but it is a little blinkered when you consider what would happen if everyone did actually go home (if they have the luxury of keeping their own passport when they are employed here).

FYI my life and lifestyle is similar to my country of origin, contrary to many expats. I met my wife in Dubai when visiting, and we decided to relocate after we married.

Anyway, end of the political counterpoint from my side. Dubai is a truly multicultural city with many positives. Unfortunately due to the nature of my work I do not mix with many Emiratis to be able to 'break in' culturally, something which I would like to do. Olive branch out - are you in the UAE?

And as an interesting thing to note, there was a Dutch lady who lived in Dubai in the '70s and '80s who documented the same areas as me. At that time there were many Emiratis working and socialising in the souks and as a woman she was able to photograph local women and families with ease. She's worth looking up - I'll drop a link later.

I didn't mean to be rude, but I am of the opinion that one should accept and embrace the variety of cultures that are evidently a real and integral part of many a country's DNA, if you will.

Even here in the small, northern country of Finland.

Where's everyone gone?

X100S, Dubai Fruit and Vegetable Market.

In Dubai

Not the proper Dubai, but not the plastic Dubai either. Pseudo Dubai. Well the Fruit and Veg is not plastic anyway

And it wasn't raining. But it did earlier this week.

For the first time in 9 months.

Anyway, a few grabs of some of the characters in the market
