This is Dubai. Yeah, the city got this color influenced from the surrounding desert :)

This is the major street in Dubai which is called Sheikh Zayed Road. Thanks a lot for the lovely comments.

Some of us can remember the 60s when there were these predictions of what the 20th century might bring: pills instead of food, robots in charge of everything, architecture yet to amaze us by its out-of-this-planet look…
We played with simple pieces of lego, we were half in electronic noise, half in earth-centered paganism, we imagined people dressed in white overalls, Bond- James Bond paraphernalia and so on.
And here is a contemporary photograph of a 21st century place, Hong Kong or Japan, who knows, built somehow the way we played with our building blocks; the city of the future is the city of the present and there are these ant like things under the suspension spider web concoctions that probably move by themselves or with remote controls operated by invisible things. In any case, there are no people in the urban sprawl.
A deft photograph.

I totally see what you are conveying with this. It reminds me a lot of this city scene from "Metropolis".

Those tram stations are very interesting looking. I wonder how this would do with a retro b/w treatment to make it look like the pic I found from the movie?

Excellent point of view, showing the chaotic side of everyday life to a city. I probably would of cropped more of the buildings out....

This captures the absolute madness that is the highway system of the US... it doesn't need to be this hard... this complicated... it shows modern societies "need" for shortcuts... direct, individual routes, but in the process of providing this, society creates a mess of roads that are impossible to navigate without GPS, and even then, one often finds themselves in the wrong lane or on the wrong off-ramp and heading in the completely opposite direction we need to be heading.

This is endlessly fascinating to look at. Not the first cityscape I've ever seen, but easily the most remarkable--for the light, the strange colors, the sharp focus that doesn't call attention to itself, the flying point of view. For me, part of the fascination is wondering which city this is. I'm guessing Dubai, so I'm wondering if that odd color in the light is normal for that city. Anyway...awesome! I can see why you entered it in this challenge.
