Chasing a Ghost

My younger son suggested that the book that I will eventually finish rewriting, should be called, ‘Chasing a Ghost’.

Some photographs which I took during my visit to Dubai in March 2015.

My room at the Abidos Hotel, Dubailand. I would lay one of her abayas on the bed.

Reflection in the mirror. Amongst Laura’s photographs were some in which she took photographs of herself from the same angle as this picture.

There was a Reel cinema ticket in her handbag. Had she been there on the day she died?

Laura had bought a couple of limited edition artworks from this gallery as gifts, one for her stepfather and one for me.

One of the many perfume carts in the Dubai Mall. Laura had two perfumes with very ornate bottles. One of them is in this cart.

The Burj Khalifa.

At last, almost forgotten alongside the Burj Khalifa, something natural and beautiful in the superficial world of Dubai.
