Though I have been in the area of Fourth and Valley several times this year taking pictures, I had never seen the large statuary tucked back against the building I was now photographing. It reminded me of some sort of Egyptian god, but I have no idea which one.
So since I was there, I figured I’d snap a shot or two of the thing and head for home. I had to get close to the relief as it was pushed back under the awning of the building.
Though I was in the shade of the building, there was enough light outside at three in the afternoon that I didn’t require my flash. I took a close up of the face, followed by a picture of the entire statue.
Surprisingly, I found ‘light artifacts,’ around the relief in both frames taken. While I’ve no idea where they came from, but do have some idea what it means.
