EE-JIPT.

Hello my homies :]
I just got back from the inspirational and sweltering land of Egypt. I admit, I took over 600 photos but I've tried to narrow it down to just nine.
Obviously, most of the photos I took were pretty touristy and didn't have a great deal of artistic merit...and I was using my slightly aged digital camera.... these are the ones that ashame me least!
And how about a lovely little commentary accompanying each one?

Ok, here we have, um... my leg :) I loved the perspective that these pillars created, so I stuck the leg in there to break it up a bit.


These are som fishermen on the nile. Oh how picturesque.

These are ancient egyptian perfume recipies in a temple. There was an entire room covered floor-to-ceiling with these carvings. Jo Malone meets the Shining in Pharonic times??? :o

This is a cow, if you haven't already guessed :p it was grazing on one of those random paches of grass that sits on the nile, kinda like a skin sits on soup.

This is an obelisk which I think was built by queen Hetshepsut, probably the most kickass pharoh ever.

Egyptian perfume bottles (I doubt they were made from the earlier recipies if that's what you're thinking :])

Not only is this a fucking awesome and photogenic camel, it's called mickey :o

The Great Pyramid af Giza which I hiked up inside depite a lack of stairs and air conditioning. It was pretty breathtaking and spooky, though :)

and here is possibly my favourite picture from the entire trip....

:)
more postys soon :)
