Hello!  Most of my work is of natural settings from the places I travel to. I’ve also begun to explore animal photography and included my favorite close up shot I captured of a Bengal tiger. All of my work is shot on a Canon 5D Mark II or a Canon 5D Mark III.

Hymn to Thoth
[Papyrus Anastasi III]
Praises to you, Lord of the Manor,
holy baboon with shining mane,
Of pleasing aspect, gentle, charming,
loved by all.
To him belongs contentment—
for he is Thoth
who overwhelms the earth with beauty!
His headdress is red jasper,
his phallus is carnelian;
Love gushes out from his eyebrows
as he opens his mouth to give life.
My entryway is sweet
since the holy creature entered it.
It has developed and is well furnished
since my Lord set foot therein.
May you all be happy, you of my neighborhood!
Rejoice for me, all my neighbors!
Behold my lord! He made me what I am
and my heart belongs to him.
0 Thoth, for me you are more than a champion;
I shall never fear what you do.

- Anastasi III, poetic translation from:
John L.Foster, “Hymns, Prayers and Songs, An anthology of ancient egyptian poetry”

One of my favoritest hymns to Djehuty. I sometimes call it “most erotic one”.

Ibis Coffin
305 - 30 BC
Egyptian, Ptolemaic Period
 
Animal mummies were routinely placed in some type of container once the animal had been wrapped in linen. The more ordinary containers were specially designed or reused pottery jars. Such objects have been found by the tens of thousands in so-called animal cemeteries at a number of sites in Egypt. At times elaborate coffins were crafted to hold the animal mummies. The ibis mummy held by this coffin was placed within through the detachable lid on the back. The gilding of the body and the exquisite detailing of the head, legs, and feet make this example one of the finest of its kind.
