A Seriously Amazing Pyramid Photo


We drove out near Kerdasa today to buy some heavy woven vine mats to roof my sitting area by the bird cage. On the way home we suddenly saw this view of the Great Pyramid and Catherine got the sot. The most amazing thing about it, other than its lovely composition, is the fact that the road is empty.

a road into a dream or the past, i'm not certain which, but a road that calls to the rest of us to follow.

That is amazing! I imagine it is even more so seeing it in person. Thanks for sharing.

Another great photo and food for thought, thanks! P.S., Last night, I saw Omar Sharif as the tutor of young Rudolph of Hapsburg in a recent movie, "The Destiny of a Prince" (title translated from Italian). Enjoyed seeing him, and thought, again, of how much warmth and joy he transmitted during his TV interview a few months ago (I mentioned it in a comment on your blog). Thought happily of your blog, too! Thanks so much for sharing your day-to-day life in Egypt.

nice shoot, used to see the pyramids from a short distance always, but this one is really cool, regards to the mother of earth as Egyptions call it.
