It’s just a start… looking forward to making more!

Beyond Bars – Giza Zoo

I hadn’t been to the Zoo in Giza (City next to Cairo, where the Pyramids are!) since Primary school, even though my Uni was right opposite to it for 4 entire years! Only a couple of days ago I grabbed my stuff and decided to go for a quick look 🙂

Street Performers – Overexposure

I was playing around with photo overexposure.. I don’t think it suites everything but I did like it when it came to street performers!

Street Performers in Europe have always fascinated me… the creativity and talent! Never seen performances like that on normal Cairo streets.

Canterbury – Close to Canterbury Cathedral. The city is famous for its University and you could find many young street performers in its narrow streets on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Covent Garden Day ‘n Night – Abstract

gridThe idea was to go out there and get some  abstract photos to merge up together into one full grid.  These two grids are simply Covent Garden windows, the top one being by Day and the bottom one being by Night. I just love how colorful they are!! So attractive to passers-by.
