      It's interesting that the statues had been trashed as far back as the early 1800's, and probably much farther back than that. I guess it makes sense to put them close together for a drawing, but they are actually so far apart that I never got them …

      Hi! Thanks. I took that photo when I was in Afghanistan for a year while in high school. I wish I had a better camera, or at least bothered to use color film, but you never know what will matter in the future.
