Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #206: Treasures
This week, Aletta (Now at Home) leads the treasure theme.
I selected a few photos of treasures that I captured in different museums. I always feel privileged as I enter into a museum and admire those treasures. These were carefully discovered, studied, and preserved from generation to generation, and are beautifully presented for us to enjoy. They are the treasures of the past, present, and for the future.
