I worked my way around the reflections by sticking my camera in through here

The grounds of the Church of Kish has several bits of the crypts exposed to reveal the really historic skeletons inside. Those interred in there date back from the 3rd to 4th century BC. Most of these pits had been covered with these arc shaped sheets of plexi glass to protect the precious remains from debris, dry leaves and of course from humans and their trash. The convex nature of the protective plexi-glass meant ugly reflections, but this also meant a gap below the glass through which one could stick one's camera in to get an unhindered view- as long as one takes care not to drop the camera inside! So this is the gap I stuck my camera through, after making sure I had wrapped it's strap firmly through my hand. Detailed notes about the Church of Kish appeared in previous captions earlier in this album. (Sheki, Azerbaijan, Sept. 2017)
