The Eye


Shooting down into a terracotta water pot I find myself reflected against the sky. These pots are placed by people alongside the roads so that someone passing by can have a drink of water. During Ramadan a little is left in the pot for emergencies, but the pot will be filled just before sunset.

So far away, yet thinking along similar lines. Just a few days ago, I posted a photo of a reflection of me between two historic structures in Milan: http://mymilanitaly.blogspot.com/2010/08/here-my-are.html
Hope you enjoy it, too!
Ciao for now, Star

I really enjoy your photos of everyday life in Egypt. So different from my life here in Canada. I spent a couple of weeks on an Egyptian vacation a few years ago and would love to go back, I found the place and the people fascinating.
