Photographer's Note

This is a closer view of the opening at the north side of the Pyramid of Khufu. You will observe that after the massive, horizontally layed, blocks of stones at the exterior, behind it are equally big blocks of stones but layed diagonally following the pyramid slope. Two openings are placed on the Khufu Pyramid. This one on the north side and another one on the south side. The openings are necessary for exploration and for bringing back artifacts from inside. This photograph is a good example on comparing the scale of the stone blocks against the sizes of people.
