Looking for Blue Skies


Cairo is at the very least the second most polluted city in the world. One of the problems with pollution is the fact that from the ground you can't see the blue sky to remember what it looks like and to remind yourself of the quality (or lack thereof) of the air that you are breathing. Get out into the desert on a windy day when the pollution has been blown to the other side of the valley and the world has a way of reminding you what you are missing.

Those are just two of the roughly 92 pyramids in Egypt. Everyone thinks that we have only three...the main ones that get photographed at Giza. These pyramids are my neighbourhood group at Abu Sir.
