“People Watching"
Location: Khan el-Khalili Bazaar, Egypt

Category: Places
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "I photographed this cat hiding under a stand at the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar. His watchful gaze toward the alley reminds me of how fascinating it was to observe the crowded streets of the market. Perched under dangling gold chains and behind a pile of Coptic Crosses, this car symbolizes Cairo to me: ancient, holy, modern, commercial and captivating."
