2011 Pic(k) of the week 2: Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

One of my favorite places in Dubai to shoot environmental portraits is the Dhow Wharfage at Dubai creek, Deira site. It is all about the hustle and bustle of loading and unloading Dhows. These old wooden boats are used on a daily basis to transport goods from/to Iran, Pakistan and India. Seeing this is a must for everybody visiting Dubai. 

2011 Pic(k) of the week 2: Sitting on the Dock of the Bay
On a recent visit, I photographed this gentlemen waiting for somebody at the Dock of the Bay. Connecting this to the famous 1967 song "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" by Ottis Redding, was a no brainer!
