up the burj khalifa

Two days ago I took a short trip up a very tall building. My mother and I went to Dubai Mall the Friday before to purchase tickets a week in advance. The entrance is at the lower ground of Dubai Mall where the ticket counter and gift shop is located and is often dizzyingly crowded. This sign is perpetually outside the ticket counter, so unless you’re willing to fork out AED400 for immediate entry, buy them nice and early (either in person or online [coming soon]) for AED100.

After our tickets were checked, we were led to an area where we could admire a small model of the Burj Khalifa before passing through security and posing in front of a green screen so that at the end they can charge you AED100 for a picture of you in front of… a Dubai night scene. I wonder if they had some ulterior motive for taking those pictures because I didn’t see anyone actually buying them.

Boekhandel Selexyz Dominicanen in Maastricht

Like the Pancake Manor in Brisbane, this bookstore in the Netherlands was once a church. I love the lighting and use of space.

I believe this picture is of a cafe in the bookstore. Love how they have artwork on the walls.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Maria Robinson

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Howard Thurman

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.
John Jakes

Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
Henry David Thoreau

Be yourself, don’t take anyone’s shit, and never let them take you alive.
Gerard Way
