Default The Middle East in Pictures

Seeing as we have lots of amateur photographers on here I thought it would be nice to start an album of all our experiences and what we have come across so Dubai in pictures thread. Also for anyone looking at moving here they can have a gander of what the Middle East is really like!

So heres some scenic ones;

I don't want to think about what happens to them as they grow and get their normal coloured feathers in!

That's genuinely cruel. I can't believe they've dyed those poor rabbits pink.

The rabbits I had in the UK (and who would be here with me if it wasn't so hard to bring them out) were some of the best pets I've ever owned. Well, aside from the habit of chewing through cables of expensive electronics anyway.

Anyway, back on topic...

I took one of the low-lying clouds before.



A couple more from around Dubai Marina:






And one of JBR walk:


Oh, and here's what my rabbit thinks of those who dye other rabbits pink

A banana, the ability to shoot 8fps on my DSLR and patience.

Einstein (the rabbit's name) always goes banana for banana. But because he loves it so much, he gets it all around his mouth, then spends the next 20 seconds licking his face. It's incredibly cute

I do miss him though.

A miniature lop. You're going back to the UK right? Let me know when you'll be back and 'll put you in contact with the breeders network that I got mine from.

They do show breeding, so they're all thoroughbred and so easy to train and well behaved.

I must say Im very disappointed in the lack of responses to this thread- I expected more from you miserable lot who all go on about photography as if you might actually take some pictures!!

So ill bore you with more from me until someone else starts posting! Im doing a 3 photos a day thing at the moment so taking pictures of random stuff I see on my way about.
