Photographer's Note

I follow up my latest post with two more photos from streets of Cairo in 1983. It was a crowded and chaotic city, but I really liked it. I loved to make long walks and to discover by coincidence streets and districts I would probably never had seen if I had been travelling with a group on an organized tour.

Today's photos are, just like the last ones, simple snapshots, taken spontaneously and not at all carefully composed. I don't remember if the main photo was taken after a heavy shower, when the sky was again quickly clearing up, or if a major water pipe had been broken.

I considered cropping a slice on the left side, to get rid of the half man, but decided I preferred to keep the view of the pavement just rising above the water.

There's one more photo in the WS. They were both scanned from Kodachrome slides.

I am temporarily getting tired of my old scanned photos, so from my next upload I plan to spend some time in the digital world.
