The Burj Khalifa, the Dandelions, and Me

"When you look at a field of dandelions, you can either see hundreds of
weeds or thousands of wishes."

       It is winter time still and the cold weather is very enticing for a stroll around the city. I have no plans since I went out alone and decided to do the usual thing I love: snapping photos. Since I am fond of skyscrapers, I went to Sheikh Zayed Road where skyscrapers abound. I passed by the Emirates Towers, Financial Centre, Business Bay and as far as the Dubai Canal. It's almost sunset when I've had enough pictures so I decided to take a rest at the nearby Burj Park. 

       The place is full of visitors, mostly kids running and biking around. I sat on a bench and noticed the new installations around the park in the shape of a dandelion. Then I remember I saw an Instagram post with the dandelions with the Burj Khalifa in the background. So I waited until the sun sets down, and the whole of the park and the vicinity were lit up. Burk Khalifa has started to treat spectators with a dazzling LED show, the Dubai Fountain has started dancing, and these dandelions were lit up. The result is dreamlike! Check out my photos below.




Wishing upon a dandelion!
