Dubai Creek Sunset

Dubai Creek Sunset


August 11, 2009

Sunset over Dubai Creek. An arab dhow makes it's way to a mooring. Many dhows are still plying their trade around the Gulf and across the Indian Ocean carring goods in much the same way as they did hundreds of years ago. Along side the creek in Deria there is much activity by large and small traders alike, with goods stacked high on the waters edge. The place is teeming with Acme Trading Companies and you wonder how they all make a living. If you want a glimpse into the real way that traders work as they always have this is the place to be.
