The final post of photo selects from Egypt, focusing again on Cairo: mainly scattered sightings of street art on Gezira, the island west of downtown Cairo, on the Nile. I came upon these walls as I was walking from the Opera House metro station to the Cairo Tower, along Al Gezira. Most of the art is from Keizer.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get many shots of street art in Egypt because whipping out my camera sometimes felt inappropriate. There were many missed opportunities, like on my way to Giza, around downtown and Tahrir Square, and in Luxor (after my camera battery died).
Part of me doesn’t want to share this set because it’s obviously lacking, but I suppose it’s worth noting there are walls in this area, near the Novotel Cairo, worth looking for.
