I have been wanting to take a decent photo of Etisalat (UAE's most sought out name for Telecommunications service provider). Follow the wiki link for more details about Etisalat. Since I always come around this area in the bus on work days only, it is kind of difficult to take closer shots and because the bus is still moving it becomes difficult to take a decent photo. But luckily today because of the rain, I was able to take the below picture, which is far better than I expected ;)

Next is the sign board for "Happiness Street". I have been going around this area in the bus for almost 2+ years and to my surprise this is the first time I discovered this sign board. Why did they name it so? Is it because people seeing this sign board instantly becomes happy? Well I had a smile when I saw this :)

When the bus reached Dubai Mall bus stop, to my surprise Burj Khalifa's top was not really visible. Look at how the clouds and rain cover the world's tallest skyscraper in the below two photos.

Hope you all enjoy my rain photos too. Do not forget to drop your comments and critiques, so that next time I can take much better photos in the rain :)

Thank you all <3

Uncle Etisalat building kind of looks like a ship. I have been trying many times to take a decent picture and now the rain helped me :)
Glad that you liked it :)
