    gorgeous and rich shades of earth…. and love the abstract quality….
    very handsome capture, dick… : )

  • Thank you, Mimi. This is a really cool place, and built so very long ago. An ancient culture. What did they know that we don’t yet? A place of simplicity… The theme today… ;)

    That’s really trippy….I am disorientated by the viewpoint….

  • That doorway has a cool tip. Level may not have been very important.
    I am sitting on the ground, camera at 45cm? 18 inches roughly.

    Love the textures, tones and the way I am drawn through the image. Lovely repetitions!

  • Thanks. The different sizes and styles are curious. But then our would be all the same and perfectly aligned, and boring…
