Photographer's Note

At the top of the north face of the Great Pyramid sits the Temple of the Macaws, so-named because of the small sculpture reliefs of the birds appearing on the fašade. To the west (right in the photo) a portion of a smaller and earlier temple emerges from the rubble. Here the sculpture shows evidence of time's passage, sharing a fate common to all of us in life. I did not climb the many steps of the great staircase on this occasion, and appreciated the facility of a telephoto that minimized the wear and tear on my body.
