pottery at el Kharga
My photograph gear ! I find the ef 75-300 a good lens for birding and moving objects a good all rounder.
the one I have on the camera is the efs 17-85 usm great for scenic and portrait photographs,
+ macro up to 6" from subject,
the efs 60, another one thats good for portrait and scenic+ close up as little as 1" from subject,
The pottery of El Kharga
iheard the pottery was a one place to visit as it dated back
over 4 thousand years, with out our Arab speaking driver
the place would have been imposible to find.
a winding shariah then another before we came to what was
the pottery and it did look like it was 4 thousand years old.
the first building was the potters wheel shed where the guy
was there with his hand out for the entry fee 20le pp
i thought we were in for a treat but what you see in the photos
that was it. he did not like me walking around the ovens taking
photos. like it was a big secret or something.
all in all it was Quite a dissapointment this well advertised
over priced old pottery. its a shame as they could make the
place a bit more tourist friendly. not even a cup of tea or
