It is an archival photo, but even 11 years ago when it was taken, this car felt already old-fashioned. I have identified it as the Polish Fiat 125p. About 22,000 of Polish Fiats produced in Poland were assembled in Egypt. It was probably the most popular car in my childhood. I suppose the pyramids are even older.

This is one of the classic points of view towards the Pyramids of Giza. I have marked the coordinates in the panel below under Maps as I always do. One of the problems with this POV is that it is a vast field with nothing there and just a group of tourists taking photos. The car was a great opportunity for an interesting foreground even though I rarely photograph cars. There were crowds of tourists on this parking and beyond, hence I took it so tight. The real colors were off so I decided to get rid of them completely by turning again to something I rarely do: Black and White.
