Avoiding SALIK

Today as I headed home I tried avoiding SALIK by taking Business Bay Bridge. As I passed under it I decided to stop in the mud nearby and take this shot. It's one of the best shots I've taken. SALIK ain't that bad to think of it now!!! ;)Anyone else got any positive SALIK-related stories to share?

Forgive my ignorance.

How do you take the Business Bay Bridge exit if you're coming from Jebel Ali to Sharjah through Sheikh Zayed Road?

i*maginate...Thanks...Didn't take me too long, was in my brothers 4WD. Got to the edge - set up my tripod - clicked away for a few minutes - packed everything up - got back home - downloaded pictures to pc - stitched them up - fixed a few issues here and there - uploaded the picture.... ;)

That's one bee-yoo-ti-ful pix Stained! Bravo!

As to the actual question, well thanks to Salik dodgers, I know someone whose working hours have shortened! Beat that for a positive ha! ;)

Nice pic - definitely yes.

Nice Salik - no bloody chance. :)

i*maginate said...

stained, the description sounds like you're the james bond of photography lol - well done...I do love that view...when B Bay first opened I thought it's the best view from the top... you should head down to the festival city to get good photo ops too .. :) ciao for now

Stained said...

Thanks Bridget Jones, the lady

i*maginate....James bond :D
I've got some good shots from festival city. Only problem are those security guards that eye me like I'm going to do something wrong....Anyway what I would like is to go the roof of crown plaza hotel (apart from getting a job as a photographer)...wish I had the contacts...
