Never has a place evoked more thought and wonder within me. Oh the splendor as well of the Mask of Tutankhamen.  Always vowed to visit before the Reaper got me, such are the dreams and goals of youth, vanished, while the Pyramids still stand and Amaze, Enchant, and Bewilder.

Discuss these Pictures at the Art & Photography Table inside the Diner

With this issue, we begin a new Feature here on the Doomstead Diner, The Diner Lens TM.  Diners have a long tradition of collecting images from around the net depicting the ongong Collapse of Industrial Civiliation in the Diner Art & Photography Forum.

We also include many graphics and videos with our Blogs, but The Diner Lens TM will be dedicated solely to photos (with captions), and the images will speak for themselves.  Credit will be given to the photographer when we can find the credit.

Photography Editor for The Diner Lens is Golden Oxen, moderator of the Diner Art & Photography Forum.


Now, this Week's Top 5 Doom Pics!

Refugees and migrants arrive aboard the passenger ferry Blue Star Patmos from the island of Lesbos at the port of Piraeus, near Athens, Greece, Oct. 29, 2015.

This is an excellent idea and will give wider distribution to GO's image curation skillz. Well done.

One of my better brainstorms. Came up with the idea a couple of days ago, pitched it at GO and The Diner Lens was BORN!  :icon_sunny:

The tough part will be for GO to pick 5 images out of the dozens a week that go up here.
