An amazing achievement. Big congratulations. Does the sheik know about your blogsite? It can be hard work, and takes a lot of ones free time, but I do get a certain amount of pleasure out of this odd art form. Thanks for namechecking me in your list of credits. Here's to the next 365!

Carol E. said...

Happy One Year!!! Your blog has been very interesting and a good place for me to learn something about an area I will probably never get to see with my own eyes. Thanks for the good photos.

Nice work Bluey - an amazing year of insights and great photos. And to think you wouldn't be a regular on our photoblog cos you thought you weren't "good enough". Maybe now you'll think you are and, with the break, we look forward to seeing more of your unique street/reportage photography on the Critical Light photoblog. You do that better than any of us could...

Looking forward to meeting up on September 12 in the UK.

Cheers

Ivan

Jean said...

You will be missed but what a way to finish. Love this photo and the stats.

Elaine said...

I love this photo. It so typifies Dubai and the other Arab states to me. That and camels being herded. It's just gorgeous. Don't take too long a break. It might get habit forming. And thanks.

Jazzy said...

Congratulations Bluey!!! it was an amazing, very interesting year for DDP, thanx for sharing. you made my visits very enjoyable.

all the best and have a good rest.
ciao!

Hi Chuckeroon, excelelnt blog you have here. Sorry to barge in like this, I looked around for an email address here but couldn't find one.

I was wondering if your good self or any of the other bloggers here would be interested in writing a review or putting a link in their blog roll with the link text 'Dubai Property' or variations of?

If so please email me at mychildrenareamazing@yahoo.com specifying how much you'd want per post and how much you'd charge to place a link in their blog roll or blog footer.

Thanks

Rob

Conservatory Furniture said...

This is the best so far I love hawking and this brings back memories of my youth.

petetow said...

A coulpe of months ago I got a British Airways Cheap Flights to Dubai and spent a month there, it was fantastic, the place is really hard to describe unless you have been but these photos say it all great work.

Garden Seating said...

There is a hawking centre near where I live as I pass by I will remeber this photograph.

Sally Anne said...

What a great shot I have betudying digital photography and bought a great camera from the argos digital camera section, I hope to be producing shots like these shortly.

Micky said...

I love this picture it captures what I think of Dubai. I took a picture of a hawk the other day on my debenhams mobile phones camera but they are just average.

Halfords Tom Tom Sat Nav said...

I love this I have a hawk myself that I go hunting with so this is close to my heart.

Congratulations on having one of the most sophisticated blogs. It’s just incredible how much you can take away from something simply because of how visually beautiful it is. I really feel as though I know so much more about this than I did before. Your blog really brought some things to light that I never would have thought about before reading it. You should continue this, I am sure most people would agree you have got a gift

Meenakshi Sankar said...

It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting things or advice. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it!http://www.netsurveyjobs.com/
