The Al Shindagha Watch Tower was built in 1939 and restored by the Dubai Municipality in 1994. This is one of three watch towers that used to guard Dubai. The Shindagha Area by the Creek was settled early in the history of Dubai and is now being developed as a Heritage Area to provide visitors with an insight on life before the rapid developments driven by the oil wealth.
I observed how the general public is passing by these monuments without paying attention or taking a closer look to it this is maybe because they see it everyday on the way to work etc. However a photographer with passion is studying subjects over longer periods of time and is coming back at different times of the day or season just to find small details changed or simply the shadows and light is playing out to be more in harmony.
