Memphis, Tennessee ?

No, Memphis, Lower Egypt.Well, it might be Egypt, and it's probably Luxor. However, unlike yesterday's slide, here's a decent holiday photo. Whether by luck or judgment, this photographer has served up an interesting snapshot. Again, its a shot that can't do justice to the whole scene and it lacks any human scale. 

However, this time its got a decent load of contrast - light and dark, and large and small. From the massive pillars, to the intricate carvings on the pillars.  And by focusing on a small set of features, the picture is interesting tho' hardly unique.

Well done, photogrpher man.
