In Dubai everything seems larger than life.
This year, to start the New Year, Dubai had a hotel fire.
A 63 story hotel went up in flames and overshadowed the millions spent on fireworks.
When the 63-story Address Downtown Dubai hotel went up in flames on New Year’s Eve, photojournalist Dennis Mallari dangled from a cable on the 48th floor and kept shooting.
Photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov was also photographing the blaze at the same time, except he was on the other side of town. From a safe distance, Neiezhmakov captured the hauntingly beautiful time-lapse video above that shows the fire spewing smoke and embers onto the Dubai skyline.
I’m glad I missed that one.
