Ticking the years away: Antique Bazaar, Old Cairo

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Amina Mansour

While strolling down Old Cairo's winding alleys, I came across an old vendor selling antique clocks. His aging face and evident passion shown while calling on people wandering in the bazaar caught my attention. And so, I chose to freeze the moment he turned my way with the broken antique clock serving as his backdrop. I later got to learn that he has been passionately working in antiques all his life and that served as a reminder of the effect each choice has upon one's soul and life . A timeless face in a memorable place of timeless treasures.
