Artist's Description

This was taken in Cairo, Egypt in the GIza area near the pyramids. Her eyes capitavated me and while my daughter was talking to her in Arabic I was busy photographing her beauty. It was taken with a Canon AE1 film camera with a 70-210 lens in natural light manual focus. I use 200 ASA film. My guess is that she was about 8 or 9.
When I saw those green eyes all I could think of was the famous photo taken by Steve McCurry of the Afghan Girl featured on National Geographic.
