I see you are all over the world, Eliza. smile
Interesting. In Cairo, they offer coffee like in Turkey, with a glass of cold water. Such a stress on teeth. Maybe that's why many don't have them overthere. smile
The look of this guy in teh corner promises nothing good. smile Hope you managed to enjoy this cup of coffee without an incident. smile
Eliza: this was an amazing place, that old man was truly fascinated by our goings on. i don't think many tourists visit, let alone many women. i felt at first that my being inside was taboo, but it appeared not. it was very hard to take pictures without being too obvious...this was quite a good way; appearing to photograph my boyfriend made things a little easier.
This is a really good picture : Thumbs up !
Eliza: thank you so much for your comment zebigleb, much appreciated smile it's one of my favourites too; i just fell in love with egypt, a photographers dream.

loving this one Eliza - a definite 'likey' for me. great composition and I like the treatment you have given it too, it really adds to the mood
Eliza: thanks yours smile, yes it's one of my favourites from the trip. i wish i could have been more open about taking pictures, but it just didn't seem suitable.
