Alive by piegaro Alive by piegaro
Oct 2004 - Dahab / Egypt [link]


"The whole front of the hotel has collapsed."

"There are dozens of people on the floor, lots of blood, it is very tense."

"I am standing outside of the hotel, the whole thing is burning and they have nothing to put it out with."

"There is nothing here."


I was there in August, taking this peaceful vacation picture.

I'm still Alive.



----
Sorry, I have taken this picture
with a one-time-use camera,
so It's very noisy

(a bit like the sun that makes you blind and happy......so you keep looking at it because you don't mind blindness if it makes you happy......which would be kind of like love....but love hurts sooner or later........blablabla........)

A side of Egypt you don't really see much with the bright colours, soft cushions and the beach in the background! Usually you just think of desert, sand, rocks and pyramids (I do anyway lol). I've always wanted to go there though.

Anyway, fantastic shot. I love the bright colours and the way they're in 'layers' - the blue, yellow and then red. From a one-time-use camera :o That is amazing! You deserve a fav for being able to get such a great shot from such a camera and proving that it's not the camera - it's the way you use it ;)

And it's the same thing with Australia (your country ?) : usually you just think of Kangaroos, sharks, and beach

but I suppose it's better than that

I really want to go there / just because it's so much far from here (Paris) - 2days by plane

the juxtaposition of the 3 main colours are incredible!
I like it a load!

and after reading the commentry, i think the piece does every bit of justice in transcribing a 'relaxed' feeling!
very awesome!
