This is not an aquarium

By clevercloggs
Recently Dubai started to create wall art in a big way. Quite a lot of effort is spend on making these painted walls look good.
Down along the beach, where many tourists come to visit the beach and the so called Beach Walk, they also painted the walls.
This one threw me, as it gives you the impression that you are in a zoo, inside one of those aquarium buildings whereas in fact you are outdoors.

dear ian,

thank you for your User-award. it is my first one since i started uploading again some days ago.
Back in my more active days (around 2008), user awards were not yet around.

The illusion is well executed, Robert, and I can easily believe that I'm underwater in a huge diving bell, or even Captain Nemo's NautilusSmile.
I like the symmetry you achieved here.

Hi Pamela,

You are actually looking at an outdoor staircase, leading down from JBR (jumeirah beach residences) to the beach behind the viewer/photographer.

I thought the graffiti was done properly and with imagination..
I hope they maintain it well, as the sun is so agressive it may bleach it within less than 1 summer.
