Cairo. El Khalili bazaar is a wonderful place to visit for those of us not used to the zouks and bazaars of the East. Particularly the spice area of the bazaar gave an image of what trade must have been like in Europe a long time ago.

Very atmosperic and delightful foto, with warm colors and nice composition. It reminds me some works of orientalistic painting

I always found the atmosphere of bazaars kind of out of this world.
The look of the man sitting on and in between spices attracted me the most in your photo. I decided to post an WS with an accent on this character looking outside the frame and the moment.

what for a moment! Great capture. The whole scenery looks a bit unreal, like an orientalist fantasy or like being taken from a beatnik novel.

a big `wow` to the mysterious arabiannights-like atmosphere created by light in your photo.
the shabby look add to the same atmosphere and the relaxed posed of the man in the FG

stupendous image, not only for the perfect neatness and for the faithful colors absolutely to the reality, but above all for the naturalness of the people that animate the scene. A beautiful photo, really resembles a few to a painting of Bruegel.
