Maybe it's charm, grace, or an Egyptian blessing from the boy king himself.
Tonight will find me photographing the King Tut gala and exhibit opening at the Denver Art Museum.
I am nothing short of ecstatic about this opportunity.
The board presenting this gala have decided to call it "Flappers and Pharaohs Bash" and tie in a roaring twenties theme complete with flappers, gangsters and Tommy guns galore to coincide with Harold Carter's 1922 discovery of King Tut's tomb.
I can't really see the connection between a rough and tumble dangerous party era and one of the most fascinating and mysterious ancient kings in the history of mankind... but it's going to be a lot of fun!
What do you think... Flappers and Pharaohs? Do these images show any resemblance to each other?
Think Al Capone knew how to walk like an Egyptian?
The chance to photograph King Tutankhamen's artifacts and listen to Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, speak about him, will be one of those special life experiences that I never forget. The fact that they're letting me photograph it is one of the great highlights of the night for me. One night with the King. I can hardly wait!
The power of charity sows deep in my heart, and I reap and gather the wheat in bundles and give them to the hungry.My soul gives life to the grapevine and I press its bunches and give the juice to the thirsty.Heaven fills my lamp with oil and I place it at my window to direct the stranger through the dark.I do all these things because I live in them; and if destiny should tie my hands and prevent me from so doing, then death would be my only desire. For I am a poet, and if I cannot give, I shall refuse to receive.-Kahlil Gibran
