OLS Reflections Sesenta y Uno



  • Never settle to please or conform. That which does not come from within, you can do without.

  • A reason why women tend to possess that intuitive inner knowing is because they give birth to the living as well as bury the dead. So they are capable of “seeing” beyond the veil of reality.

  • Question everything including yourself, then redefine it accordingly. For unquestioned answers are way more dangerous than unanswered questions.

  • The more you know yourself, the more following others’ experiences will seem futile. Through direct experience, self-knowledge then becomes the journey during which our inner truth is found and owned. This Rabbit Hole is a bottomless pit, an everlasting endeavour guiding the soul as it keeps spiraling closer and deeper towards its inner core.

  • If you knew the true magickal power of a simple word of appreciation or encouragement, you wouldn’t miss a chance to share one with whoever deserves it.

  • One cannot help wondering if that that same die-hard-fan collective passionate energy the Egyptian people have for soccer in general and Mohamed Salah in particular could be channeled towards a different direction, perhaps the Jan 2011 Revolution would have not been hijacked. 

  • When both eyes are closed the third will guide you towards mystical heights.

  • Drumming for men is very much like sex. Some fast drummers play like they are constantly ejaculating ― which forces them to stop after a while to be able to start again; while others learn how to prolong the orgasm until it becomes a state of mind, eventually leading to explosive Tantric ecstasies.

  • When people become fully and openly themselves, living their own truth, they will inspire some to do the same. They will also trigger the insecurities of others who are still trying to find a way to become their true selves and live their truths. Down deep inside, the latter know the inner work must be done; yet their egos will often keep looking for excuses to justify their inability, inaction, or lack of courage.

  • The wiser one becomes, the less they feel the need to explain themselves or prove their views to anyone.

More People I Shot





We all smile in the same language.

Following Some People I Shot, this is the sequel. As I was compiling the photos I realised how many they are hidden between tens of Gigabytes of material. Some were captured throughout the last years after leaving Egypt to Canada then the U.S, while others go back to much earlier times when I was still getting into the photography world. One of which is the featured photo of stunning Yasmina — taken on the Northern Coast of Egypt in 1999 using a 1975 Minolta and a telephoto lens.

I was also reminded by something I love about taking photos of people, which is finding elaborate ways to make them loosen up and smile naturally in front of the lens, especially strangers. A quick-witted joke or a simple silly face as I click usually do the trick. Enjoy...
