Monument

This week’s WP Photo Challenge is Monument.

Pyramids

A monument to the Pharaohs but also to history and family ties.  This photo is my Grandfather’s photo, taken when he was stationed in Egypt in the inter war years.  Although I never met him, his love of photography has passed to me.

This is my version of his photo, tinted in Photoshop.  If he were with us today I think he would  love the possibilities of tinkering with his images in Photoshop.

  1. Rich’s Grandfather visited Giza at about the same time. Although I can’t condone graffiti, he was apparently one of the thousands of people to scratch their name at the top of one Pyramids, back when you were still allowed to climb them.
