Pyramids by ageofloss Pyramids by ageofloss
I have always wanted to see the pyramids, but since I've never had the chance to travel all the way to Egypt, I decided to bring that part of Egypt to me.
Those pyramids are small miniature souvenirs I got a few years back and I have no idea what's written on them (if not just decoration), hopefully nothing offensive tho.
The picture was taken in a large sand pit I found couple of days ago.
Hope you like it :)

Also I forgot to mention, outstanding job bringing the pyramids to you ha , instead of you traveling all the way there, improvising..that's what makes a great photographer I think.

Amazing contrast, it's dark with the shadows and yet it's light with the sun! This picture reminds of like the Egyptians would look at those 3 points of the Pyramids as a way of finding yourself if you got lost? It was done mathematically right? Something like that I forget the story, anyways love this very much, bravo..well done, I rate it 10 over all!
