The Burj Inauguration

(Article RE-POSTED from my photoblog: Mix Pix, dtd 05Jan2010).

The Burj - currently the world's tallest building (over 800 meters/160 floors high) and serves as an iconic symbol of Dubai's economic growth and stature, was finally inaugurated last night in conjunction with the fourth anniversary of Sheikh Mohammed’s accession as Ruler of Dubai. A grand spectacle of choreographed sound, light, water and fireworks display was the highlight of the event.

Together with some friends, I went to see the show and squeezed our way through the huge crowd that gathered. We secured a spot in close range, but sadly, that may not have been a good idea, it was a struggle to take good photos and videos while in the midst of a restless crowd who couldn't keep still because of anticipation and excitement. Good thing my hubby managed to take good photos from a strategic place near his office. The fireworks display was very good, but a lot of people felt that it was too short, we were clamoring for more and even waited a bit longer, hoping there would be a part 2  or something... lol ...

Here's my captured video of the fireworks display...






To view our captured photos, please head over to my photoblog - Mix Pix, I want to centralize all  photo posts there especially if it's too many, so I've put only a thumbnail here to direct you to my photoblog (click on blog link or at image).






 Have a great day!
