I’ve recently came across some “induced perception” photos, and decided to create some of my own, with the help of my little bro 😉
It’s just a start… looking forward to making more!
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 🙂
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.
London – Trafalgar square, right in front of the National Gallery. You might have seen him if you pass there often enough.
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.
So.. which is your favorite? Personally I like them all, but the Cello Lady is my fave 🙂
The 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.
I found this traditional old wooden window while walking around the Coptic area in Old Cairo. It was a window on the side of the nunnery (the place where nuns stay) of the Coptic St. George Monastery.
This old lantern is found hanging, among many others, from the ceiling of the first and oldest mosque in Africa. Amr Ibn Al Aas Mosque, located in Old Cairo, is the first mosque built in Egypt and thus the whole of Africa, around 642 A.D.
