These dhows were being loaded and unloaded in Deira creek just down from our hotel. It was wonderful to watch and to think that this may not have changed for hundreds of years, other than the things they were carrying. No cranes, no dock masters and not a plimsoll line in sight. All this in such a high tech city.
All the photos were taken with a slightly slow shutter speed to show the movement and excitement of the show. Flash not used.
