I’ve mentioned in my last post how I’ve spent some time testing & preparing a few of my original Off The Hook crochet/knit designs that will eventually make their way into my shop.

Recently while out shopping I came across some pretty crochet baskets & as tempted as I was to purchase a few the price tag was a little too steep for my taste. Of course as soon as I arrived home I made my own version & actually love it even more than the ones in the store.

Ohmygosh I absolutely adore this free beginner knit pattern: Non-felted Slippers by Yuko Nakamura & have made several pair for family, friends & of course myself. I achieved various sizes by switching needle by a 1/2 – full size

Street vendor selling windshield covers in the middle of a busy highway.
He was kind enough to let me take his picture :]

Many flag vendors lined the street after Egypt’s revolution. I managed a few captures although I did not want to cause much attention to myself at this time.

Here is a scene you will see quite often in Cairo. Often times there are entire families on one bike. Not very safe but pretty awesome! I will have to hunt down an image to show you…I know I have a few. – a windshield capture 🙂

Night Capture in Cairo. You can see the mosque in the background.  Appears I was not suppose to be shooting here and nearly had my camera equipment confiscated. Was it worth it?  Probably not!    (stupid American! hahaha)

Where is your favorite place to shoot street scenes?  Where in the world have you been?/  have plans to go? /wish to travel to?

The images I am sharing today are totally unrelated to one another.  A bit of street photography captured in Cairo, Egypt mixed with man-made structures & a few natural creations.   Random I know….it’s what I’m feeling today 🙂  Enjoy!
