Everything around me looked surreal. I wasn’t sure if I had time traveled to the past or the future, soon it became clear, I was in both.
In capturing the essence of this bizarre place, I took a few painted liberties with my photos to show the diversity, beauty & craziness of this intriguing city.
I stood in awe looking across a man-made lake bordered by high-rise buildings sprouting like weeds out of the desert. Continue reading
