Photo Round Up – Week 49

5 photo round up of what I saw/did this week.

Hope you all enjoy them.

Friday Prayer in Tahrir, Square!

Tahrir Square on Friday January 3, 2012. I will only say this because I have a post with 26 photos of this day coming on Tuesday. I am lucky I was able to whiteness one of the most amazing things in the world.

Friday Prayer in Tahrir, Square!

This has easily become one of my favorite photos of the entire trip. This image to me is so powerful... I have starred at it in awe & wondering "what is he thinking?" "why is he standing up?" "is he Christian or Muslim?" and so on... it was also taken on Friday January 3, 2012 @ Tahrir Square.

Children of Elephantine Island, Egypt!

Meet to of the many children on Elephantine Island, Egypt. This is Island is one of the most beautiful Island I have ever been on and well you know it have a post coming soon about it too, so won't say much about it either. As for these children they loved when we walked around and wanted us to take photos of them and then show them. They would get so excited and giggle. Love the smiles... BEAUTIFUL!

Temple of Philae, Egypt!

Pilars at the Temple of Philae - I know it just pilars, but I love this shot for the colors and the detail that can be found on the walls and the pilars them self. Oh & of course the lady in the middle looking through a door.

Agazi of Elephantine Island, Egypt!

Meet my new friend Loon, he is about to be 60 years old and has lived on Elephantine his whole life. He speaks fluent English thanks to the tourist who have visiting Aswan and the Island during his lifetime. We spent hours just chatting away... and had some amazing experiences with him. Of course I will be writing about that too later so won't say much.

Sorry on most photos I am not giving full details… it’s just Egypt is fucking amazing with so much to share and don’t want to spoil it before the post come out. I hope you understand and I hope you come back for the post. I think you will love all of them that I have planned.

  1. Those 1st 2 shots are perfection!

  2. Jaime, I’m loving your blog lately. You just seem so unbelievably happy, and I’m so happy for you. I love, love, love your Egypt posts — I can’t wait to get there someday. It’ll happen. These photos are beautiful. The one of the man standing while others are kneeling is breathtaking. You really have an eye for this ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to read more!

    • Thanks Katie, I am so happy it’s insane. I have been for a while… okay I lie while in Athens I wasn’t but I needed that break. Now though Turkey was amazing and Egypt is blowing my mind. Thank you so much for following along… I hope you make it to Egypt and everywhere your heart desires one day. I mean it…

      That 2nd pictures is hands down my new favorite photo of all time. It’s just breathtaking.

  3. The 2nd photo is probably my favorite of all I’ve seen on your blog…and there have been some great ones. Love it!

  4. I too LOVED Egypt when I visited a few years ago. I had always wanted to visit and just did it on my own once I could afford it (and had the courage!) ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to visit again and explore more of the country. Sounds like you’re having an amazing experience there! Pictures 2 & 4 are gems. Total gems. Frame ’em. Sell ’em. Do something with ’em!

    The 2nd one is definitely a very powerful shot. I wonder what the hell that guy’s doing? Bad back maybe… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. I know everyone else has said the same thing – But I love the second photo. What a great shot!

  10. Jaime – I love the 3rd picture, the one with the kids! I got watery eyes. Every time I see the pictures of the kids RTW I am thankful for everything our parents did for us. I am also grateful that I am able to provide for my children. It seemed like they were enjoying you taking pictures.

    • Cecy, I know exactly what you mean. When I meet children around the world I think the same thing. It’s sad to see the conditions some of the children I have met. I wish I could give them everything, but sadly I can’t. The most I can do is make them laugh enjoy life a bit and see my camera. They love it when you take photos of them and then they see it on the screen, they stay there like wow.

  11. Do you even realize just how good your photography gets every day? I swear each post has better pictures than the one before it. Amazing. That second picture….wow.
