“IN PHOTOS” is a series I will use to share many of the hundreds of photos I have taken during my travels. It is a series I have thought about for a while now, but did not want to start until I got back home from my trip. However after spending a week in Chefchaouen, Morocco I couldn’t wait any longer. “IN PHOTOS” will not have a set schedule like my “MUSIC MONDAY” or “PHOTO ROUND UP” series. “IN PHOTOS” will be a post with several photos with no limit. The only restriction this series will have is that it must be about a certain subject or theme. I will write a synopsis describing the subject or theme of the photos and then post the photos. I will not caption the photos like I do on my “PHOTO ROUND UP” with my thoughts. I want to use “IN PHOTOS” to share my photos and let you come up with your own thoughts about the images and hope you share them with me. I have also numbered them in case you want to leave a comment about a specific photo.
I’ve mentioned before that for many when they think of Cairo they think of a bustling city bursting at its seams with a population of over 20 million people in the middle of the desert. They think of the crowds, the traffic, the sand, the street vendors, the taxi’s and a million other things or they just think of The Great Pyramids of Giza (not the OTHER pyramids). Well all that is true and no matter what people think of Cairo I love it. I’ve now spent over 4 months total in Cairo and before I leave will be over 5. I have taken 100’s of photos of this amazing city and I just want to share a few with you now. These are by no means my best, these are just a few shots I think capture the essence of Cairo. For me the essence of Cairo is chaos and the natural shade of sepia that the city is coated in with the occasional bright color here and there. Cairo is a MAMOTH of a city that is very diverse as any other city in the world. These images are of Downtown Cairo the heart of the city with a beating pulse of someone who just ran a marathon that keeps this city alive. When I walk through the streets of Cairo I always feel an amazing rush of blood through my body that lets me know I am so alive and thriving at it. I hope these images convey a portion of what I think is the essence of the city and what it makes me feel.
Have you ever been to Cairo, what do you think of it?
If you haven’t after seeing these images what do you think of Cairo?
