Taken at a local (ie. non tourist!) market in Cairo, which I found out about from an American I met studying Arabic language.
This is a view from a large overpass bridge. It was easier to capture from here than when I was actually down in among the clamour at ground level!

I will never complain about Wal-mart ever again. The POV is very revealing. I am hopeful that good deals abound in this market. Excellent work

Great perspective - congrats. Your picture shows and gives the real bazar or souk feeling. There are countless details, peddlers and shoppers. Colors and sharpness are fine, while DOF is excellent due to the long winding alley.

Great capture, neat and tidy Cairo!!! Excellent POV and great contrast between the colourful people and teh drab shop rooftops. Well composed as teh eye is drawn up the laneway.

Scene de vie des Egyptiens loin des photos touristiques.Réalité d'un quotidien dans la ville du Caire où des millions d'hommes vivent dans des conditions précaires.
Bonne soirée Isa

wow, David, almost surreal photo, like another world that one wants only to be in Sc-Fi movies, but unfortunately is reality.
Despite the poverty, the photo is beautiful and of an excellent quality.
I like it a lot
Well done, well seen, well captured
PS: for NG?
