Project 365 este un proiect fabulos ! La finele anului 2010 , o amica americanca m-a invitat sa fac parte dintr-un grup de fotografi amatori . Le-am urmarit fotografiile zilnic cu nerabdare descoperind o multime de lucruri interesante, asteptand ca noul an fotografic sa inceapa la 1 ianuarie 2011 .Ce este de fapt acest proiect ? Acest proiect este parte din viata noastra , simplu dar in acelasi timp interesant , fiecare zi din viata noastra este “documentata ” de o fotografie. Ziua si fotografia , astfel la finele anului 2011 , albumul notru trebuie sa contina exact 365 de fotografii . Fiecare fotografie are istoria ei , reprezinta ceva , fiecare fotografie va arata un nou sentiment , un loc inedit , un eveniment , o emotie umana sau un firicel de iarba. Proiectul in sine pune in miscare atat corpul cat si sufletul , te face sa fii atent la detalii , la sunete si culori .Lucruri care pe langa inainte treceai fara sa le observi devin subit absolut fabuloase , lentila camerei de fotografiat devenind prelungirea ochiului tau care nu doar ca vede si capteaza imaginea dar o imortalizeaza in 1001 de culori. Project 365 este emotie, pasiune si viziune !

Palm tree on my neighborhood Miami located on the Mediterranean Cornish of Alexandria City , Egypt. I wish i would have made a picture related to last night event on Alexandria, the bomb attack that took place in front of a Christian Coptic Church but i guess would have been too painful to actually see the place full of blood although is painful already that this happen 10 minutes away from my home.May God rest the deaths in peace and forgive their sins, Amin .
Square in Cleopatra , area Sidi Gaber . I was passing by on my way to an office for some legal papers and there it was , the iron flower. This is day 4 picture from Project 365 delaied cause my internet connection.

Day 46 – Fruit street seller ! One of the campaign now in Egypt is about helping this kind of sellers , to buy from them and not from the big stores , to let everyone survive . Those kind of sellers were always chased by the police and brutally harassed them . The Tunisian revolution started when some policemen slapped a fruit seller and took his cart , after that the man put himself on fire and Tunisia erupted . I preferred them always because they are always having fresh fruits and vegetables .
