My Sunday Photo Week 165 Dubai Opera House What a difference a year makes



Work started on the Dubai Opera House in April 2013. The first photo was taken in January 2016, shortly before it was was completed in August of that year.


The second photo is the completed Opera House, taken from a different angle, as when I started photographing projects in Dubai, I had no idea how the rate that the City would be growing when we moved here just over 3 years ago.


You can see the rest of my Construction 'before and after' photos of Dubai and around the world and buildings of interest I've photographed below:

Week 158 Bluewater Islands and Dubai Eye. Man made island a 210m high Big Wheel
Week 159 Dubai Marina - Reflections
Week 160 Dubai Frame. A window between the Old and New Dubai and a 150m high glass floor.
Week 163 New Metro Line for Expo 2020
Week 164 Hoover Dam

  2. Another fabulous building. I am in awe of how much quicker they 'grow' than buildings in the UK.
