It’s been a while since I made a post, and even longer since I made a post with some of my black & white travel photographs, so I’ve decided to show some of the photos from my trip to Egypt in February of this year.
Most of the tour that I went on was devoted to visiting ancient monuments from the days of the pharaohs, but I happened to arrive a day early. Half of the day was spent exploring the pyramids at Giza, but the other half was spent walking around Coptic Cairo, which is the old Christian section of Egypt’s capital city.
This section of town is made up of primarily pedestrian streets, with a number of very old and beautiful churches, as well as the Ben Ezra synagogue, where a cache of papers dating back to the time of (and including manuscripts by) the great medieval scholar Maimonides were discovered in the 19th century.
Here are some of the photographs that I made there.
