INSTAGRAM - meet me there50 years ago the landing of men on the moon made it seem less distant. I was at school then and we watched the landing on TV. Now I am living on the other side of the world in a place that also seemed so distant to me when I was a child growing up in Australia. I watch birds fly high above as the moon rises during sunset and I realize that the promises of anyone some day being able to travel to the moon have remained a dream, and will remain so at least in my lifetime. We can only continue to watch and wonder.... #moon #birds #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sea #sunset #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegypt #moonlandingIn this trilogy of bird images, only this photograph does not show living birds. These birds are part of the wire and concrete statue of Um el Sid (the mother of Sid, a legendary figure), but at times when the sunlight turns the statue to a silhouette they appear to be real birds perching on the dish she carries. #statue #birds #sharm #sharmelsheikh #redsea #sunset #southsinai #egypt #trover #lonelyplanet #canonme #everydaysharm #roamegypt #discoveregypt #everydayegypt #thisisegypt #myegypt #blackandwhiteHoopoe or hodhod appear in ancient Egyptian art.
