Men At Work Plus A Mile Stone - Theme Day - #181


For the monthly theme day I was torn between art and commerce.

I saw commerce immediately, what with the much publicised Dubai worker conditions, Dubai's economic growth and construction of some of the most ambitious and odd projects in the world as as being an obvious topic.

However I had to shun the darkside and look to the light...

With some difficulty I had to choose art over commerce as I felt it was the right thing to do. By the way - I'm not calling my shots art, they are images of the process of making art. A process I am grateful to be associated with. These are from the film set I came across at the weekend. These are the men at work I choose to celebrate on this theme day.

For those interested, here are the clapper board details for posterity...



And on a small personal note - both Dubai Daily Photo and my DP twin's Shanghai Daily Photo are six months old today!

Good photo, I like it! The sepia works really well, as does the sense of looking up to see the action.

Congratulations to half a year photoblogging. Not many blogs manage to keep my interest for so long but I am an (almost) daily visitor to this place!

I like today's picture but I still don't quite understand why the clapperboard is so huge - or is that just me being tricked by the perspective? How did you get so close to the action, are you working with the film people?

And your photo reminds me that I have to post my first ever theme day picture as well!
