LX5 - Upstairs at The Souk, Central Market, Abu Dhabi

Hi there,

On weekends here I sometimes visit The Souk at Central Market here in Abu Dhabi.  Great interiors, a good camera shop (for browsing) and a very nice Sri Lankan tea shop.  Unfortunately many of the shop units haven't been let yet, so it isn't as busy as it could be, particularly on the upper floors which are empty.

In many of the corridors on the ground floor, the lighting inside is pretty poor for photography, but the tall stained glass windows on the way up to the cafe on the roof created some interesting effects.

The LX5 did pretty well, I think - all hand-held.

I liked this square of light...

Roof garden...

Stairwell & Water Wall

Another view of the light square

Light pools cast by the stained glass wall...

Managing to keep my own shadow out of shot..

Thanks for looking,
