I had heard a lot [and subsequently noticed] that in the UAE, there is some distance between locals and the large resident working population. This distance exists in the workplace, in shopping centers, in markets, in policies and so on. Not a lot of the residents can claim to have a long and steady friendship with a local Emirati, and vice versa.
This is the only shot that, from my entire stay in the UAE, features a local Emirati family. They were sitting right in front of the Dubai Fountain, perhaps waiting for darkness to fall and the fountain show to begin. Perhaps not so different, after all.
