Those photos somehow to me look as if they have an Egyptian touch. Love the last one in particular. Diane

I always find it difficult to photograph in some museums and at many exhibitions, but you did a wonderful job esp with the light.

The Sao Carlos National Theater is gorgeous! As are the costumes which I assume are being used or have been used in various theatrical productions.
