Show Me Your World

The fabulous NicoleB is hosting another great photo challenge over on her blog NicoleB Photography. Since I so rudely offered to join but was ultimately unable to participate in her last scavenger hunt, I was keen to sign up this time around.

All you have to do to participate is to post a picture of your country or State. It can be the one you were born or the one you live in, whichever you feel like it. Then show it off!

My first instinct was to post a photo of the CN Tower but that seemed almost too easy. Then it hit me: the pyramids! But not the pyramids that everyone sees in the history books. Rather, my photo is of the pyramids local Cairenes see every day.


Don’t forget to check out everyone’s photos over at Nicole’s place!

What an absolutely exotic picture; it combines the modern and the ancient; it is so much fun to ponder the fact that the buildings differ thousands of years in age.;))

That is an amazing picture. The modernf bustle of the city and then an ancient pyramid in the background - simply stunning.

So glad you didn't post the usual showing the Nile as if it were right beside the Pyramids!

This is a great photo and brings back so many memories!

The old juxtaposed against the new is fabulous! I bet you never tire of seeing it :)

I meant to catch up on your blog this weekend...you have written so much! But with Emma things just went to hell rather quickly....so this evening I will sit down with a cup of tea after she goes to bed. Some good reading up ahead, I can tell!

That's amazing the pyramid is just sitting there in the background...

Nicole said...

I love the perspective of that shot.
Totally dig it :D!
Thanks for playing along and thanks for all the praise and butter ;)!!

I love the way the pyramid almost seems to be insignificant...

WOW! How exciting to be living in Cairo! What an experience.

Thanks for stopping in and saying hello on my SITS day!

That is just so crazy to me to see a pyramid in the middle of the city! The only other time I've seen anything like it is the Luxor in Vegas.

Totally not the same thing at all!
