What Annoys Me About Dubai - Theme Day - #153

EDIT - What annoys me most right now is that no one has been able to post a comment due to a blogger issue - sorry to all - very annoying, yet somewhat ironic... grrr....

It's now fixed...

(The author readily apologises for the lack of a picture of a radio advert, but if you need it for context this photo was taken while listening to Catboy on Dubai 92FM)

Todays theme is "What really annoys you about my city" - This was a tricky theme for me. I love Dubai and I don't like negative stimulation for a start...

Anyways - some things are obvious, such as traffic and construction.

There are other annoying things in Dubai. Namely radio ads. In fact the most annoying thing in Dubai is radio ads. That's it.

There are greater problems, more sad crimes, higher moral injustices and more significant intolerance that occur in Dubai - however in terms of annoyance (which in the grand scheme of things should be in the realm of the tolerable) the most obvious day to day relatively bearable annoyances are radio adverts, traffic and construction.

50 Daily Photo sites are participating in the 1st December theme, "What really annoys you about my city", please use the links to below to visit them.

Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.

i like listening to the radio rather than watching tv most of the time.
that radio ads also annoy me a lot, sometimes i will turn to another channel when i am losing my patience...

Well, I'm not going to let a little blogger problem stop me from leaving you a hearty "congratulations"! I just read the press release on the CityDailyPhoto portal and see that you were named #2 UAE blog! That's awesome! COngrats again!

I've been reading / watching your blog for some time now - and truly like your ability to find the 'photograph'-able in Dubai - something I have not managed so far. Your pictures truly capture the spirit of the place. You're a lucky man your job allows you to get around so much.

I have taken a shot of the same landscape, if that's the word for it, check it out.

Keep up the good work -
