Lamenting an empty space.

So far there are two photo collections on the 5th anniversary of the Revolution that are lamenting the emptiness of downtown; Jonathan Rashad’s on Jadaliyya on Tahrir, and Maged Atef’s on downtown, which also appeared on Buzzfeed.

I guess there are emptiness of events and emptiness of everyday,  along with lamenting the emptiness of the January 25th downtown (which is not a tragic thing after all) there has been an  ongoing  depopulating of downtown from people, buildings and activities (see posts under the category of downtown).
