Early morning. A stroll in Alexandria. If you are on foot, you can see the most. On the streets there were many cars. A loud honking ambulance was not left over. In the Al Max street I saw the outside-looking men drinking tea. Of course they have seen me right away and may have thought, oh, a tourist with camera. Nevertheless, I took a photo in passing.

Great colour, detail and composition. You have captured the atmosphere of the cafe very well. It is interesting to note that most of the men are looking towards the camera. They must wonder why you wanted to take this picture. Also interesting to note that there are no women. At this hour in the cafes in Granada there would be almost as many women as men.

Nice capture of these men in the café !
Beautifully colored scene of daily life, most likely to be seen when we travel by walking. This is the best way to see some interesting things.
I like the yellow color of the chair in the FG.
Very good composition my friend.

A great capture of this 'men only' world. You seemed to have caused quite a stir; no doubt they chatted about the tourist with his camera for a good five minutes afterwards:-) A well taken 'grab' shot.

All eyes are directed towards you and your camera, but I appreciate that you took this photo anyway. It gives a chance to see another picture from this, at least for me, unknown place. A very interesting glimpse of "real daily life"! Thanks for sharing.

This picture is very nostalgic to me. Not that I have ever been to Alexandria, but this could be just anywhere in the Mideast and it brings back so many memories. All these men spending their days in the cafés, smoking, talking, playing games (and maybe waitng for the government to fall). I also remember very well the feeling of everybody looking at me.

Surely a very common scene in Egypt, but not the type of photo we see often. I like the scene and the details inside the café. I wonder what's that on the floor. Good colours, light and sharpness!

AND YOU DID GOOD
YOU KNOW SOMETIMES THEY FEEL ANGRY WITH TOURISTS BUT SOMEOTHER DON'T CARE ABOUT.
THE POINT IS TO LIFT YOUR CAMERA UP AND SHOT.
WHAT HAPPEN NEXT WHO KNOWS - JUST SHOT AND YOU WILL SEE.
EXCELLENT COLORS MY DEAR AND MOMENT
