City of the dead by lostknightkg City of the dead by lostknightkg
"...No god won't save you 'cause he don't
care about this town no more
And given the choice of eternal
voice, well it's seems we've
been ignored
So strap on your boots and pick
up yourself and run as fast as
you can
The only way in is the only way out and
We're in the city
The city of the dead...." -

It is unkown why the ancient Nabataeans lived amongst the dead but it seems the conecept of the after-life had great importance to these people. This was taken in the "Street of facades".

Petra Jordan.

Not sure yet if this city of the dead will trap us in, but, for now, I´m sure as hell that the invitations is very tempting. Very good capture, Kris. Love this one more than you have probably expected when you did it! :rose:
