Ciao cara Lisa,
What a fascinating note you have written! Not only did these people connect life on Earth with a spiritual life but they also wanted to leave some record of themselves for future generations - and not an artist's concept but an actual scientific image (not dissimilar to a photograph, really) or silhouette of hands, probably our most important body parts and those which have elevated us to such lofty heights in the animal kingdom - many believe more important than our oversized brains.
How wonderful that these wonderful images have been preserved so well (despite vandalism by earlier "discoverers"). I should have thought that the pigments would be very water soluble and would have disappeared ages ago. Are these images in a cave and so not subjected to wind, rain or bright light?
Your photograph is truly impressive and you've brought out the details and colours here remarkably well. And together with such a fine and informative note, this is a perfect upload for TE!

You found an amusing triangular view of the trumpet player. The composition makes me think of a poster for a Wild West movie, but these people have drawn their musical instruments instead of guns. This is very much to prefer.

these are the type of shots I like to have in my own gallery :)
Easy to see why you'd be pulled into this scene.
the tall buildings are like big brothers protecting the new baby of the family down below :)
and as for the truck, well, what can you do? Its a busy intersection in NYC! Its gonna happen.
cool to see the clouds reflected on the left too.
see you around

Once again you're showing a good shot with really nice architecture and the woman sweeping. I like the details of the arches and that huge pot. This is the kind of scenes I like a lot, discovering the old cities is just wonderful. I'm wishing to return there soon:)!

Looking at this one, we can clearly see how big the castle is. I know it only from pictures:) but I can imagine it's visited by many tourists.The people passing add a lot. A nice pov and composition!
A good series of photos of this place!
