La Mer

I shot these photos just after ‘golden hour’, a bit too dark for my liking. They give a good idea of the general area (my goal).

La Mer is located in Jumeriah Beach. It is the strangest mixture of California meets Florida. You can be walking along the board walk and and feel confused about your location. It appears to be built more for Western tourists than locals. Sephora. Five Guys. A boutique cinema. Loads of shops and restaurants… And oh so pricey.

My personal favourite is the ‘street art’ that decorates the walls and fences throughout the beachfront. The artworks were all commissioned however still maintain an aspect of originality. Every time I visit, I spot a new piece hidden behind the trees or around a corner.
