Cairo like you never saw it before!!
Last Saturday, I was attending the JDC egjug.org/jdc2008 .. I was much distracted on the day, generally, & I didn't benefit much. Anyway, during the "Java & .NET interoperability" session presented by Pooya Darugar, he showed popfly popfly.com I don't know why really :D.. While he was showing it, he created a sample "Mashup" on the fly.. It was a simple app that gets pix from flickr flickr.com given a tag & displays them in a cool way.. Trying to be friendly, he chose "Cairo" for the tag.. As I told u earlier, I was much distracted (& had a bit of a headache too).. so between the ghosts I was seeing @ that moment I saw a couple of amazing pix from flickr.. They are really amazing.. The author was someone called KoRaYeM.. I checked them today (a couple of minutes ago) .. This guy KoRaYeM is ... I can't find the word actually.. just check his pix.. here's his profile on flickr... flickr.com/photos/korayem .. & to my astonishment he has just started photography since last August!!! according to this flickr.com/photos/korayem/2131413578/ .. The pix I saw on JDC are those: http://flickr.com/photos/75354058@N00/1803230025/ http://flickr.com/photos/75354058@N00/1543283671/ This last one was even available in Diwan Bookstore according to this http://flickr.com/photos/korayem/2094998893/ & http://flickr.com/photos/korayem/2097936648/ The first one is on my PC background right now :D..
