Photographer's Note

This pillar has been here for at least two thousand years, so it should be entitled to lean on the wall.
This is from Baalbek, an enormous complex of Roman ruins in the Bekaa valley of eastern Lebanon. Baalbek contains the largest temples ever built in the Roman empire, but the history of this city goes back to long before Roman times, to about 5 000 years ago.
This picture from 1995 was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
