Early rising…

Early rising…

I cannot tell you what it is like to awake to the sound of the morning call to prayer from the hundreds of mosques within earshot of my hotel-room window. I cannot express to you how that sound is stuck in my memory in a place just as deep as anything I’ve seen in my travels.

There is something extraordinary about it. I heard it first in Cairo and it has never left me.

But… while I stand there at the window, I will take a quick snapshot. These photos are my memory…

…but there’s just sometimes even a photograph that encapsulates an extraordinary wide angle of view fails to really capture the moment.

Stay tuned,
-Noah D.

PS: There are a few extra photos from May 28 on Flickr here if you’re interested.
