Egyptian Dreams

I had hinted on my facebook fan page that I was going to self publish a book of my photos from Egypt.  And after a bit of a learning curve, it’s ready to see the light of day! It’s an opportunity for...

Hot Air Balloon picture over the Valley of the Kings in Egypt

End Of Morning

Alas, the end of the sunrise hot air balloon photos shuffles to an end. The flight was a bit over an hour. I took a 100 pictures in the first maybe 20 minutes and then I sort of relaxed and just soaked...

All Those Camel Jockeys

My camel guide, bless him for his patience, was maybe not the best photographer. He had the right idea, but everyone of my group pictures have something that is, for me, a glaring flaw. Most of them, he stood behind another guy...

Shadows on the Sahara

It seems hard to believe my trip to Egypt ended over a month ago, but that was January and even February is speeding to a conclusion. Where does time go? I’ve been busy with work lately. And when not busy with work,...

Pyramids – As Seen on TV

Sailing Sort of Down The Nile

Let’s see, catching up from my last post… That evening, we took a little boat trip as a group across the nile to this little restaurant on the edge of the Western Desert. Great fun, but for me, so so food. The...

Egypt Time

Time is passing quickly here, but it’s passing on Egypt time, which turns out to be very similar to Mexican time. Nothing is quite on time, but no one seems to care so I’m gradually getting used to it again. It does...
