Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Community (Pharao)

This weekly photo theme is ‘community’.

Long ago the society of Egypt and all of its communities was ruled by the Pharao.
Here is one from the museum in Luxor in  Egypt.

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series.
That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet.
Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Grand (Pyramids)

This weekly photo theme is ‘grand’.

The plateau of Gizeh is a special place to visit. To marvel and admire the skills and know how of these old buildings.
Looking so fresh and contemporary when you look at them on the inside or in detail.
Leaving the ‘big’  grand question: why did they build them, what were their purpose(s)?
If you come up with your own answers, wow.

Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Grand (Valley Temple Gizeh)

This weekly photo theme is ‘grand’.

This is the Valley Temple  of Khafre next to the great sphinx and on the causeway to the pyramid of Khafre.
Its being grand is not in what you can see –
– even though the masonry is so impressive – but what you can feel walking around there.
It is a haven and a place to recharge and feel ‘wow’.
Well: seeing is believing, isn’t it?

Weekly Photo Challenge/ B4 retouch: Grand (Sphinx)

This weekly photo theme is ‘grand’.

This is a pretty grand icon:  the great sphinx. En profile as the French say.
Once I met the sphinx and marveled at the texture of the stones, I wanted a close up of the head.
What are the eyes looking at? What have they seen?

The B4 retouchg of series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series.
That series caught on a bit more than I thought; there is a lot I like and sometimes never printed before.
All of them are not retouched yet.
Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.
