Very interesting detail Marilyn. I'm courious about the ratio. Ciao, Daniela

Thank you, Tony, Mary, Eva, and Daniela.

This statue of Ramses II lies protected in a building in Memphis built so that viewers can look down upon it from a walkway. The giant sculpture is 10m (33ft) tall, so you can see that the hand and seal are very large!

I posted a photo of the head and shoulders of the statue, but I took it down within a few seconds of putting it up. It was nice, as good a photo as I could get under the circumstances, but there are other adequate ones on Panoramio. This view is much more distinctive! Cheers, Marilyn

I like distinctive!

MaryKnapp on December 20, 2008

I do too, and you have an unerring instinct for it, Marilyn

Thanks for your nice words!

This is a lovely shot Marilyn. It shows your searching eye. I have just read your comments about it. You are a very selective person!

Greetings, Amelia

I'm very glad you like this image, Alicia. I think some who saw me take it thought I was a bit strange! And special thanks for the *.

Marilyn, I suppose you could of turned round and said 'It's OK. It's for Panoramio'.

Mind you, you'd probably still get strange looks at that comment.
