Vivian and I recently returned from a trip to Egypt. The results of our two consecutive January visits will be on display in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA beginning on Tuesday Feb. 4th. The photo show, Egypt is the Mother of the World, will have an opening reception at the Valley Photo Center on Sunday, Feb. 10th.

Antique/ Jewelry Shop, Aswan, 2018

We brought back pictures from 2018 for the owner of this shop in Aswan.

Egyptians really appreciate getting their pictures. We returned with photos for the farmers and workers loading sugar cane onto their Nile barge. I had photographed them almost the same week last January. The camel (below) was not a big fan of me getting so close.

You can see Vivian in the picture on the left. She had to put her straw hat on to show that it was her.

These guys got a good laugh looking at their pictures from last year.

We did not get a chance to find this wonderful outdoor cafe again. It is the only photo of this group that is exhibited in the upcoming VPC show.

    Sorry to miss the show! These pictures look great. I recognize that quality of light on the camels and the men with the photos from my time in southeastern Turkey, even though its more than a thousand km away…its this uncompromising desert light.
