Photos: Returning to Cairo

The images from Cairo during the country’s revolution earlier this year were shown around the world within seconds of being captured.

Now, six months on, here’s another set of pictures from Cairo you should look at. Photographer Natalia Sarkissian has taken a fascinating bunch of photos of life in Cairo today, which have been posted on the Numero Cinq blog (which I only discovered after spotting it on the home page of WordPress).

What I found fascinating was that this wasn’t a cliched ‘life is back to normal’ photo set – it included shots of the on-going protests, which admittedly are much smaller in number.

The last picture is particularly superb.
