wandering the Bastakiya quarter

Some more photos from Bastakiya in Dubai. The textures here are really amazing, with the winter light making them stand out even more. I've always liked photographing doors and windows, but here they take on a much much more interesting feel.

                Looking into the doorway of one of the art galleries.

              Outside the coin museum. There are several small museums here, all have free entry and a lovely intimate atmosphere.

Gorgeous!! What camera do you use?

Thanks!

These were taken with a Casio EX-Z50, a simple 5 megapixel point and shoot. I now mostly use a Canon G11, but it's bulkier than the Casio, which is so easy just to slip into one's pocket.
