Alexandria 16 - A dusty street near the port

Alexandria 16

Alexandria, Egypt, 15" x 11"

A dusty street near the port of Alexandria.  Here I am trying to convey a feeling of a hot day,  a busy road, a bit of dust (which is probably unavoidable in this part of the world) and smoke.  There's a lovely mosque here with it's minarets towering above the street and the side of the dome catching the light.  A liberal amount of splattering has been used here and some lifting out of colour on the road surface.
