The Steve McQueen Of Dubai - #21


"May I take your photo?", to which he said "Sure".

I was so pleased that he didn't make any move to pose or smile, just kept on doing his own thing and looking at me as if I were a bit mad. I mean why would I want to take his picture?

Simple - becuase if you were any cooler you would be the Steve McQueen of Dubai!

The shot was taken in Deira near the Spice Souk and the abra stations.

The backround sign here is an area map, they exist randomly throughout old Dubai (as do versions of famous cool people...)

Well I must be going blind then!!

Ah - the infamous Taunted has found me...! Welcome!

I didn't actually say I thought He looked like McQueen just that he was as cool as him...

non-motorbike jump over barbed wire fence not with standing of course... Deira has a lack of the items.

You folks made me laugh. I looked at Taunted; my word, what is that community list all about??

Your photo is great! I like the candid aspect of it, and the blue on the shirt matches the blue on the sign (poster?) behind him.

I thinks he's more like James Coburn.

Cool dude, but I vote for James Coburn if you're going for a lookalike. It's so cool he didn't pose or smile after you asked. Nice one.
