The Sphinx Needs a Vacation

201310-hd-sphinx-penn-museumjpg

The largest ancient Egyptian Sphinx in the Western Hemisphere has lived in the Penn Museum for 100 years. After welcoming visitors for a century, he’s in need of a vacation.

To celebrate its 100th anniversary in Philadelphia this October, the Penn Museum wants you to take a “portable Sphinx” with you to a favorite spot or destination and snap a photo with you in it.

Download and print out the Portable Sphinx here. Take him to other museums, historic locations, sports games, or on your next weekend getaway.

When you share your photo, add a caption, and you could win a private tour of the Penn Museum’s Egypitan Galleries, a one-year membership to the museum, and more.

Editor Obsession: Nikon FE

Nikon FE

I bought my Nikon FE in 1983, after months of careful shopping and comparing and saving of money. I was 14. I had never owned an object I loved as much as this one: it was all black, a beautifully utilitarian piece of machine-tooled aluminum and glass. That summer, my family went on vacation to the Loire Valley, and I took many hundreds of photographs of castles, and a few of my parents and brother, too. The strange thing is not that I still love this camera, though of course I do, but that I still use it. Today it’s technically an antique, but the FE is notoriously rugged, hailed by professionals back in the day for its ability to operate in extreme conditions. Needless to say, the photographs, too, seem more rugged than any JPEG. I pile them in a shoebox—tangible, permanent records, far from the iCloud ether.
