Photographer's Note

The Temple of Horus in Edfu, Egypt, is the most complete temple remaining from the civilization, and is an amazing place. The outer walls around the temple remain intact, and inside these walls were avenues for the priests to walk - outsiders were forbidden. These hieroglyphics therefore were never seen by the common eye, and when you walk there early in the morning, you get a sense of what it felt like to be a priest. The only sounds that morning (very early) were the chirps of birds that nest in the cracks in the hieroglyphics. They are of similar color and blend in if they are not moving.

I took this with normal default settings on a Kodak Advantix camera with Advantix film; 200 speed high definition. I am not generally happy with the color definition I get from Advantix anymore, but I must say that in this case it is a tad irrelevant; this is the precise color.
