Is it just me or is my camera geared to look out for rubbish.
it seems these days every photo I take has some garbage in the frame when I get the frame on the computer I have to crop to get as much of the bird or scene as possible without garbage in the shot.
I took a photo of the moon just to get a photo I did not have to crop make sure my camera was working properly,
this one is not so bad as one can guess the size of the bird from the 7up can.
or this one to the size of a 1.5 liter of water bottle.
and if you want to find a rubbish site follow the hooded crow.
these birds are always sorting the rubbish out.
yoo hoo I'm here in the rubbish catching flies.
oh great I found some matches be OK when I dry them out.
a Mercedes Benz engine waiting to be put back in one of the cruisers
not to worry they can get some oil in those empty plastic bottles then toss them back in the Nile so the tourist can see pretty rainbow colours in the water,
then they will get a new engine just like the big boats.
dogs scour the shore looking for a morsel of food that floats in the Nile
Isnt it idyllic? it is as long as you do not swim in it or drink its water,
problem is every person living near nile water from aswan to Alexandria get to drink this nile river water,
I am pleased to let you know there is bottled water here from Siwa. pure refreshing mineral water.
but I have to shower in this water, I used to love swimming in the Nile but in Aswan as near to the dam as possible.
went back down to the Nile to get some sundown shots
and these little white egrets where on the Nile,
I should say little grey/black egrets but there is no such heron.
this is plain and simple Nile river oil pollution .
and no" Torry canyon "comes near the Nile.
and its lets beat the donkey time for this nice boy
