Carved Statue Iymery EG050953jhp 
 Iymery Steward serdab figure man carved statue stone alcove Giza Egypt Western cemetery mastaba carvings painted wall reliefs left in this colourful mortuary chapel situated in the Western cemetery between the Great Pyramid and that of Khafre and open to the public and a welcome diversion from the crowds that surround the nearby Pyramid of Khufu. These photographs are a mixture of natural light time-exposures and some using the rare opportunity to light with flash, given the go-ahead by the custodian. They were taken in JPEGs whereas today I would always use RAW files and having the advantage of a tripod I would always use natural or even mixed light where possible thus avoiding flash hot spots; flash incidentally does not cause damage to the paintings despite many such claims and restrictions.

Giza Central Field EG024120jhp 
 Giza Egypt Central Field overview Khentkawes tombs mastabas Musilim Cemetery, an area that lies roughly between the causeway of Menkaure and that of Khafre in which there are many old mastabas and rock cut tombs, some open to the public such as Debhen or Iwn-min and the most prominent of which is the Mastaba of Queen Khentkawes the last major Royal construction in the Giza complex visble in centre. It is an area left to the individual to explore and has an eerie feel wandering amongst some grotesque eroded faces of limestone showing the natural damage that centuries of wind and blown sand can do to unprotected soft limestone. To the western boundary of this area is a large bluff with the modern Muslim cemetery beneath it on the right. Giza and distant Cairo are in the background and this view is taken near the Causeway of Menkaure.
