Photo Hunt: Four

This is my first entry to this fun meme - Photo Hunt. The theme for this week is "FOUR", so here goes my take on it...

Four "Abras"
(click to enlarge)

Abra (Arabic: عبرة‎) is a traditional boat made of wood, used to transport people across Dubai Creek in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A medium-sized single-engine craft with a capacity of about 20 passengers, it is driven by a single operator from a sort of cockpit stepped in the center of the hull. The short platform around the cockpit, sheltered by a canopy, is where the passengers are seated, all facing outwards 10 on each side. The speed of the engine may be varied, while the steering system is basic: often a wooden rudder connected to the cockpit's mechanism by means of ropes and pulleys.

  1. Totally gorgeous shot.
    I would have never guessed Dubai though.
    Looks more like Asia.

  6. I'm with Nicole -- at least on the gorgeous shot part. Wonderful lighting for starters, and the water's calm enough to give good reflections, but disturbed enough to let you know it's there. I might have guessed Dubai from the background (though probably not) but I wouldn't have figured it out from the boats.

    This is just gorgeous.
