21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sailors and The Sphinx

Members of the French Navy's bagpipe band “Bagad Lann Bihoue” visit the Sphinx in Oct. 2020, during their first and only outing during covid. The normally very crowded Great Pyramids and Sphinx complex in Giza, Egypt was virtually void of tourists during this time since most travel had come to a complete halt, making these scene even more rare.
