Saturday’s Snapshot (surat al-sabat): لقطة السبت

As you drive down Airport Road (also called 2nd Street, also called Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum Street, and yes it’s confusing) towards the Corniche, there is a sort of park that divides the road in two. Along the park are a series of huge sculptures: a cannon, a teapot, a small fort-like tower, a sort of flower-pot looking thing, and a tagine. The teapotcoffeepot(ack! I knew it was a coffeepot; I just forgot until corrected by @rupertbu, in the comment below) is my favorite. Occasionally water jets from the spout like a fountain.  I hear talk that these sculptures might be demolished in favor of something more “modern,” but I love these and hope that they aren’t destroyed in the name of progress.
