Flying Egyptian Goddess

Prior to departing Kelly Place B&B I saw this wooden model of a “Flying Egyptian Goddess” hanging from the ceiling of the activities lodge. I did a number of shots, trying to bounce the flash in a way to minimize shadows. I liked this one the best. Image taken 5 years ago today after completing the Elderhostel “Southwest Photography” workshop with my father and brother.
