More from the archives. These photographs were shot on Ektachrome during a captivating visit to the capital of Egypt in 1988. One cold and damp afternoon recently (yes, we do get that type of weather in S. W. France) I was going through my collection of slides and thought some worth scanning. So, here are a few. What interested me about these images is that several street scenes looked like stage sets, even though they are actually real! I've included a few showing 'life on the Nile' because you can't show Cairo without its river, can you?
