In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symmetry.”
In sorting through my photo album to find material for last weeks challenge, I came across photos I’d taken while working at a dam in Egypt, sometime in mid-eighties. The ones that intrigued me I had taken at Rameses tomb, south of the Aswan Dam, at its UNESCO-sponsored transport to a new location to escape inundation by the new, deep reservoir being formed behind the dam. I still marvel at the engineering accomplishment of successfully moving this giant structure, block by block, and hardly being able to detect any of the resulting joint-work today.
The quiet majesty of the tomb impressed me very much. The pictures I’ll show today were taken inside the tomb and its interior temple.
