Images from around my city


This is a pic I took while going around town wit my sister finishing some errands & playing with my new mobile's camera.
It's one of many beautiful buildings scattered around my city that belong to the time before the revolution.These magnificant places belong to the royal family of Egypt.Ofcourse after the revolution many of these palaces & mansions were taken over by the goverment...the lawful owners were kicked out after stripping them from all that they once possessed ....homes,land,jewelery & money...many chose to flee the country.
What's heart breaking is that many of these palaces were either used as goverment headquarters or left to rot!!!
This palace is in a relativly good condition because it's occupied by a division of the police force!!!! So they keep it in tip top condition...
So what do you al think of this majestic building?
