That Cabbie Copped my Design!
The other night we were going to a going away party for one of Liz's friends, so Liz and I took a cab.

Stuck in traffic on the way over there I saw a familiar sight. An ad on the cab next to us had a silhouette of buildings in Dubai - just like the header of this website and our wedding invitations!

See, from left to right there's the Emirates Towers, some other building, Burj al-Arab, Burj Dubai, Dubai World Trade Centre and the Dubai International Financial Center.

Hey, I think on the far right they even have a palm tree!

Punks.

True, on the wedding invitations I didn't have the Dubai World Trade Centre or the Dubai International Financial Center, and I cut the Burj Dubai from the header of this website (at scale it just wouldn't fit properly!) but still, they're pretty similar!!

Personally I like how I have all of the buildings under construction in the background, I mean, to me that's really more "Dubai" than the rest of these silly buildings.

Sadly, I don't know what company this ad was for - my camera phone is a little lacking in image quality to read the ad properly. Oh well.

Let's just say "great minds think alike" then.
