Photographer's Note

This is from the outskirts of the Karnak Temple, a short distance north of Luxor in Egypt. According to my notes the building is the "Pylon #10", located at an entrance on the southern side of the large temple complex.

The construction of the Karnak Temple started almost 4.000 years ago. The 10th pylon was built during the 14th century BC.

Looking at this photo from 1983 I suspect the pylon had undergone thorough restoration in recent years.

I suppose my reason for taking this photo was the combination of ancient building and young children, especially of course the little lady in red. This was also one of the few places in the temple area where I could take a photo without any tourists included.

Two maybe more conventional photos from Karnak are in the WS. All photos were scanned from Kodachrome slides.
