When i read the word Grandeur, that is what i remembered. This wall was used for delivering water to the royal family in Egypt ages ago and it was the only way for having water. and now its still standing and yet its used as a shelter for a lot of homeless and poor people. The Azamat of this wall in its duty to Help People since back then and now. The man which appears in this photo gives certain age and history and it made me feel how old he is and at the same time how old this wall is.

Sarah is Egyptian and currently lives in London, U.K. She says, “A photographer?! Never thought about it…. Suddenly I found myself carrying my camera and shooting photos till I become graduated from photography department, my Secret is Nikon. One of quotes I like ‘photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world’ by Bruno Barbey.” Her website is here.
