According to Egyptian Tradition, the 40th day after a late person’s funeral is a day of remembrance. Today is my sweet grandma’s 40th… and I’ve worked on this one here in her memory… I really miss every thing about her… but knowing how much she suffered especially in the past year and a half, its comforting to know she’s in a happier place 🙂
I had actually seen a photo of an old lady with a similar “effect” about 7 or 8 months ago when I was still in London. So when I came back to Cairo I made a point of taking good shots of grandma so as to try it out and only today I dug them out and selected a good one and here you go! 🙂
I just miss her… RIP.
Them British clouds, can’t be more dense than close to the sea!
My First time to touch British waters… or pebbles for the matter… loved the colors, hated how tough they were to walk on. (was wearing tight socks before this pic was taken, which may explain the tight rims around my ankles :$ )
I do have a thing for taking pictures of shadows 😀
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 🙂
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.
