Muslim Green Eyed Giza Girl by 

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.


This photo has been featured in “Childhood”, “All Things Ancient Egyptian”, “#1 Artists of Red Bubble”, “Art of the Middle East”, “Artistic, Creative & Very Talented!” “Moody and Evocative”, “Around the World”, “All Street Portraits + Photography”, “The Human Condition” and The Addicted Photographer"

  • Yes, It was way at the end of my art so now it is near the beginning. I guess it worked out okay but I was upset when it disappeared.
