Strange things happen sometimes. I was visiting the Mohammed Ali mosque in Cairo's Citadel when I heard "Pssst, pssst..." behind me. A group of young Egyptian girls were shyly asking to have their photo taken with me. Of course I allowed them but I wouldn't let them leave before they let me take a picture of them.
Even though both girls are wearing headscarves, I find it an interesting contrast between "modern" and "traditional".
In this frame I have cropped the image to show just two of the faces. A picture of the entire group of four girls is posted to a workshop.

A gentle pleasant portrait captured from amongst the hustle of a city that is so busy.

Excellent portrait of the women of Egypt. Their expressions are very natural and I believe that they liked to happen for you.
Thanks for share.
