  1. What great city shadows for the day! I not only love the shadows, but a chance to visit Cairo! Always wanted to go there! Have a great weekend!

  2. The massive shadows convey the look of size, an immense place. The shadows emphasize the mass. However, the pedestrians are going about their day, so the scene doesn't look so huge but there is a human element to it now. The city is thus alive!

  10. I like it when it´s just ordinary stuff from the city in an ordinary day. It´s just as fascinating as anything else because I have never been there.

  18. As you notice I deleted my earlier comments.
    I'm sorry to open my frustration here.
    Even if everything I said was true, I don't need to write that all here.

    Please don't hate me because of my mistake...

    I apologize.
