Monitor Calibration Egyptian Style

By SlowSong
I snapped this thinking that there was a picture in there somewhere, but it was only when I converted it to b/w that it came to me. Well, even the Egyptians needed to calibrate their monitors somehow.

Before I read your description I though what a great image to calibrate your monitor. It is also a great composition and ideal in mono.
