    Talking P45+ in Egypt

    Last December I went for a very short holiday to Egypt and I decided to bring along for the trip the P1 645AF with the P45+ (lenses: Phase 28, 80, 150, Mamiya 45AF), as well as my film Ms. Due to the trip being one of these organized holidays where almost every minute is organized and where one is brought around from one place to the other with about 15-20 minutes free in each location for photos, I couldn't shoot as much as I wanted nor could choose the time to be on location, and so on - this trip was, for me, just a sort of appetizer and a teaser for more trips to come: Egypt is an incredible place to photograph! In the meantime, I thought I'd share some pics with you, hoping you enjoy.

    To start, some P1 street/PJ photography (who says the P1 is not good for that!):


    Schoolteacher, Phase One 28mm


    Sleeping soldier, Phase One 80mm


    Soldier, Phase One 80mm


    Sitting man, Phase One 150mm


    Man at the door & crocodile, Phase One 80mm

    Then, some classic Egypt views:

    Philae, Phase One 150mm


    Sisters at Kom Ombo, Mamiya 45mm


    Jetty on the river Nile, Phase One 150mm


    Kom Ombo, Mamiya 45mm


    Temple of Hatshepsut, Mamiya 45mm

    More photos (including M film stuff) here.

    Hope you enjoyed, as always C&C are most welcome!

    Very nice series, Vieri. Beautiful captures, and sparkling Phase rendering
    I was there with my wife in 2007 and I also hope to go back some day.
    Our greatest experience was to visit the nubians in the villages like the one seen in your "Man at the door & crocodile" picture.
    The interesting architecture and the fascinating colors. Unforgettable.

    Vieri - thanks for sharing. These images just reinforce the quality capable of the P45+.

    Look just like Phase files for sure and I just love the first shot
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Thank you Steen, glad you enjoyed The nubian villages are very interesting, as is the whole country IMO, and definitely I want to go back there again - this time with more time in my hands though!

    Thank you Don, the P45+ is just a great back; I was very happy to see that I can use it on the street as well (not as portable & compact as my Ms though, but slightly better files! )

    Definitely not my idea of holiday, nor of "seeing a country": but hey, it was free, so I said what the hell and I went... I decided to use the trip as a "tester" for the country, to see if I found it interesting enough to go back again or not: I obviously did, so I hope to have a chance to be back soon (with at least a couple of weeks time though).

    Thank you Guy, glad you enjoyed - the guy in the first pic is a schoolteacher, and that is his classroom; talking with him after taking the pic, he didn't ask me for money or anything like that; he asked me if I had some pens to leave them... I had only one with me, but when you think that the hotel where we were staying had a couple pens & paper in every room, and the local school had none, that is sad and makes one angry at how things work in this world...
