As a Photographer myself I do love the pictures of one of my favorite historic sites. So much thanks to yourself and your Uncle.
Just out of curiosity, did your Uncle detail much about the arab spring and what sites they damaged?
It frustrates me that the idiocy of a decade can ruin the legacy of millenniums

My uncle took a two-week tour of Egypt's major monuments in late 2010. He left the country only a short while before "all hell broke loose"(his words) in the form of the Egyptian Arab Spring, round one. As we all know, during the chaos of the revolution, many archaeological sites were damaged, museums were looted, and artifacts were stolen. Much was lost, and some of the monuments were irrevocably changed.
