Although Rod Tryon and Anthony Cappetto are in Dubai, U.A.E. for a large street painting project, we thought it would be fun to share some of their travel photos of beautiful Dubai. We as street painters love creating the art work but also love taking in the local culture of wherever our travels take us. Following are photos from the Old City section of Dubai, originally settled and the old part of downtown, near the Burj Dubai and photos of the Jumeirah Beach Residence, a completely different new area of the city with luxury hotels and residences. Enjoy!

The Dubai Museum.
A fabric shop in the textile district which has many fabric shops and small stores called souks.

The Jumeirah Beach Residence area is right by the Arabian Sea. Here is the view looking out from the JBR side.
