Eye on the World: Dubai

Time flies when you’re seated in Emirates’ Business Class. Just ask this journalist, who flew on the award-winning airline’s inaugural nonstop flight between Dubai and Fort Lauderdale. Three gourmet meals, one 78-inch-long lie-flat seat and 14 hours later, and I was ready to take on Dubai—the city of old and new—mosques, marvels, shopping malls and all. To see the City of Gold through my F1.7 lens, flip through the photo slideshow below.
