Scaling the Heights: Great Zimbabwe

Great Zimbabwe -Tish inside the walls of Great Zimbabwe

Between the walls of the Great Enclosure. The wall behind me dates from the 1400s, the one in front with its less skilled brickwork dates from the 1200s AD.

  1. Gosh, the texture in the photo and composition is lovely (here I go talking like I know how to talk about these things). But I like the roly-poly quality of the bricks and your expression, in between. Cool. It’s that kind of expression you put on in a scene like this when you’re surrounded by something so much bigger than yourself, which is funny. Like how am I here, right now?
