An Endless Task


Everywhere you go in Egypt at almost any time of the day, you will see someone sweeping. Cairo and Giza are in the Nile Valley, but the Nile Valley is in the middle of an enormous desert, so dust is everywhere. The amount of dust that might collect in my house in Canada in a week would be maybe a quarter of the amount of dust that collects in my house in Egypt in a day. Can you learn to love dust?

i love the way the sunlight dapples this building and gives the photo atmosphere, you have managed to make even such a boring task look strangely romantic!
Have a Happy New Year
