Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

One day in Dubai gave me enough shots for Pattern Photo Challenge. That day we came to Dubai with car, parked it by the creek and just bellow the parking house there was a beautiful souk (market) with spices, teas, esences, fragrances and other smelly and tasty thinks.


Spice market

From spicy souk we continued to the gold one, where you can find all the gold jeweleries in shapes and patterns you can think of.


Gold market

Finally we took abra (boat over the creek) to the other side of the water to see fabric souk, with beautiful, colorful, glittering fabrics with embroideries. I just loved it :-).

    I guess I like the stones more than the fabrics, because the nature patterns are less planned and structured. I guess.
    But that´s really awesome work, Katy. I´m quite impressed.
