With the increasing tragic events in Egypt, the resulting sheer complexities surrounding the situation, including the general and spreading looting issues, here are a number of links of 'better' and 'happier' days via my vast collection of photographic surveys and collections/
All photographs have been taken over the 20 years of my visits to Egypt. The earlier photographs were taken by my 35mm camera (1990's to early 2000) while photographs taken up to 2008 were using a good resolution digital camera, and from 2009 onwards a high resolution SLR camera.
 
The photographs include the many important ancient Egyptian sites and a number of Coptic sites. Also included is the aerial survey of the West Bank Necropolis in 2010, and a selection of daily life on and around the River Nile.
 
This is an on-going project and there are many additional photographs and sets to add in the near future.
