Men in Blue

Construction workers for the Dubai Metro project, UAE. What raises my eye brows is that these people whose happiness consist of someone taking a picture of them are building this country into what it is becoming. They work 12-14 hours a day on less than $150 a month. And yet they are not allowed in shopping malls. (Construction workers banned from Shopping Mall).


  1. I see so those are the Dubayyan equivalent of the Men in Blue often referred to as the police over here. How ironic.

    The young kid has so much hope in that smile. He can't be but a teenager?

  2. I'm sure the kid is a teenager, they were so happy when i took the picture. These people work hard and always keep hoping for things to improve, the ones I have talked to have never complained about their lives like most people I know including myself do. For us missing a movie or not being able to go to a party is a big issue and our complaints don't stop, I wish we'd look at others when we complain and are ungrateful for the blessings that we have.
