Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in the central court area of the Dubai Festival City shopping mall, which has a interesting zig zag stair case as it's major feature. Water also flows down the sides of the walls, shown in the image, from the top of the stairs at a height of about 30 metres. Water is generally utilsed in most of the architectural developments, as it is a symbol of life in the Arabic culture.
I don't often use B and W format, but in this case I felt that it helped focus purely on the architectural lines of the stairs, as well as the Arab man in his traditional dress.
Asthe light was not fantastic for photography inside the mall, I did push the ISO up slightly to 200,as I did not hace a tripod with me.
