When cruising the nile in the first week it gave us a chance to relax and aclimatise to the weather first, it allowed me to capture some interesting photographs.
Also on the top deck it gave me a chance to brush up on drawing quick figure drawing.
When we went hot air ballooning over Luxor it gave us a very unique perspective, birds eye views and large panaoramic cityscapes. A large featue in the city's skyline is the big mosque which is still currently under construction.
The photo which shows the mosque displays the scale it is being built on, dwarfing the surrounding buildings. The scale and boldness of this mosque appeals to me.
This image looks quite funny to me how all the sattelite dishes are scrambling for space upon the rooftops. It also shows other rooftop clutter that is the norm in Egypt.
As well as being nice and hot and the interesting sight seeing trips, it gave me alot of stimuli for my then upcoming Art foundation, it also gave me a great chance to play /experiment with the new camera.
