Post No. 1
Port Said's Market

I grew in a small town on the SE Mediterranean sea, in Egypt., called "Port Said", I took thousands of pictures of seagulls and waves, sand beach and rocks, ships crossing, but never tried to look inside, look at people, talk , see what they care for and what they do, I joined my friend Tony, and walked into the deepest part of the city, the dark side,, Satoota market, it is where people can find fresh cheap food back there.. people there claimed  to be dangerous, and it is too risky to walk with a camera in this place, it was a challenge, expecting people to refuse us and be aggressive with us, but it was all wrong assumptions, they were friendly and interested in us as much as we were interested at them.. here are some faces from my home town.

Camera used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 lens
