The Syrianaaa way to say hello world:

Well this will be my first post in English. I have to admit, it wasn’t easy for me to take this decision and start blogging in English. But I felt it is necessary now, as I want my voice to be heard, even for those who cannot read my Arabic blog “Kharbashat”.

What I’ll be writing about? Actually I don’t know! But I'm sure that my English blog “Syrianaaa” won’t be an English version of the Arabic one. I might write about myself, my life, my opinions and thoughts, my concerns... and sure about my photos and my photography hobby!

So why not? Wouldn't be nice to start with one of my favorite shots?

I took this photo last summer, one long morning in a village of upper egypt area “ASSAEID”, for a girl were sitting outside.

I like in this photo two things: the girl’s facial impression, and the shadow + the light reflection.
In such Egyptian villages the summer day is too hot and too long. Kids have a lot of empty time that they don't know how to use it. So you can see them wherever you go, at the farm, at home and mostly in the village's streets where i took the photo i call "waiting".

Those are more shots for the same girl, at the same place from other angles:

Finally i have to say goodbye for the moment. Untill my next blog i'll keep you with this set of photos (on my Flickr account) that I took last summer in Upper Egypt
