One of the questions I’m being asked about more and more lately is who takes my photos?

Most of my pretty photos are taken by my boyfriend 🙂

Today I’m publishing some Black and White images.

They say: “When you photograph people in colors, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”



My boyfriend is really into Black and White photography and I asked him many times before why he is so obsessed with Black and White.

He says: “Colors can be terribly distracting in some images and can take your focus away from the subject. I like taking the color out of my images to let the subjects speak for themselves”.


Black and White images can be strong, high contrast and powerful – or on the other side soft and gentle.

Of course the black and white vs colors debate is a very personal one.

Zamalek .. Walking Tour


As I have been struggling with the summer flu for more than 10 days, I decided to explore and wander the island of Zamalek.

The island is known to be one of Cairo’s most affluent neighbourhoods and is a popular spot for both Egyptians and expats alike.

Because of the high density of embassies around it is also one of the safest neighbourhoods.


Zamalek is reachable through several bridges namely; Qasr al-Nil Bridge, 6th of October Bridge and 15th of May Bridge. 

I found out that the streets in Zamalek have changed names over time though many of us still ask taxi drivers for the old names which still popular.

The good thing of walking around the island is that you can enjoy the Nile view. 

Zamalek is a popular place to go out with numerous cafés and restaurants when you need to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea or lunch and dinner.

Around the Om Kalthoum area of Zamalek, where the legendary singer’s villa once stood and a statue of her remains today, I love to hangout at Pottery Cafe.


The atmosphere in Zamalek nowadays is very relaxed and it is one of the few areas in Cairo where strolling in the street is enjoyable, with lots of trees and greenery around. 

So what have you been doing lately?


A woman so full of contradictions. No need to understand all of my duality. Accept me for who I am, not what you expect me to be!!
