Cairo street scenes, Dec 2008 - 30

Note: this photo was published in a May 12, 2010 Los Angeles Times book-section blog titled "Some of the Pushcart winners for 2011."


Moving into 2014, the photo was published in a September 1, 2014 blog titled "You’ll Never Get the Sense of Egypt if you Don’t…"




These photos were taken on Dec 18, 2008 in the city of Cairo -- starting with some dawn photos of the Nile River taken from our hotel room, and followed by some sunset/dusk photos of traffic, pedestrians, and life on the streets of Giza section of Cairo.


The sunset pictures are, in many cases, somewhat blurred and "noisy" -- because they were taken from a moving car, without flash, and with the ISO setting on my digital camera cranked up to 3200. C'est la vie...
