A stone pillar rising up from the calm waters of a lake at Zhangzhejia, China.
Must admit this is not the best of photos.
This photo was taken within a relatively dark temple in Egypt. The inscription on the wall is no longer sharp and clear after thousands of years.
I do not have the faintest idea what the details are about. Supposedly, the letters are there to explain a story.
I guess the second figure from the right maybe Osiris, the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead.
Wish there are Egyptologists among us who can enlightened the rest of us.
Still fascinated by what I saw on roof tops, be it in the West or in the East.
A ship juts out from the top of the building in Chong Qing, overlooking the Yangtze River, with a mix of old and new underneath – old houses with tiles, contemporary bridge across the river and further away, high rises.
Are they just fascinating?
It is amazing to see what is On Top.
Grass, swimming pools of various sizes, water features, rest areas, trellis, planters with plants, sun bath chairs.
Also, fans for cooling water system etc.
You have antennas and satellite dishes, devices for lifting gondolas for cleaning and maintenance of external walls etc.
Sometimes we never know what are on top of roofs.
Up to now, we still don’t quite know what they are.
The cylindrical golden thing on top of the roof is definitely not a water tank.
It is also surprising to see there is a skull like thing on top as well.
We can only surmise that they are related to religion / folklores in Inner Mongolia.
There is symmetry on both sides of the main structure. These objects are repeated on the other side.
