Pic(k) of the week 12: Old & New at Dubai Creek

A few days ago I went back to one of my favorite places in Dubai, the Dhow Wharfage at Dubai Creek. I came home with a collection of people and Dhow (old style wooden boat) images and decided to give some of them an antique look.

We all know the expression, "a picture is worth a thousand words" well I guess this one is worth 4 thousand words! 
I like the water reflections on the boats in the top left image as well as the expression on the faces. Life on these wooden boats is very different from modern life in the city... Looking closely to the bottom right image, one can see a sailor using the self made toilet hanging on the side of the boat. 
For me these 4 images tell a story. I would be interested to know what you think.
