Camels and the Egyptian Pyramids

Unusual. In this week’s Photography 101 post on point of viewLynn Wohlers offers great advice on how to show your own unique way of looking at the world:

“Challenge yourself to rethink your ideas about what subjects are appropriate, and then challenge yourself again to find an unusual perspective on your subject.”

For this challenge I am sharing some photos of Camels and the Egyptian Pyramids with an UNUSUAL POINT OF VIEW. The most famous Egyptian pyramids are those found at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo and I had the opportunity to visit them last year. Here are some of the countless photos I took that day.

Constructed about 2,500 BCE, the pyramids are the oldest and the only one of the “7 Wonders of the Ancient World” surviving today. They were built by a grandfather, father, and son. Each generation built their pyramid smaller than their predecessor’s.
