DEK Photography: A Museum Exhibition of Systems of Writing

in #travel3 years ago

I usually post single photos of interesting subjects, but this time I decided to share the permanent exhibition of different writing systems, at the local history museum. Most of the alphabets you will see below have been carried in one form or another to the region of current Bulgaria (spanning over a large portion of the territory of former Thrace) - a location often cited as an important geopolitical crossroad (often controlled by Greeks, Romans, Ottomans and Bulgarians) and thus an important route of most of the ancient traders, traveling predominantly from the far East.

There are also two reproductions of tablets, showing writing systems as old as 5 thousand years B.C., found at archaeological digs at two local villages. Hope you enjoy!















I'm on a quest to obtain the incredible Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 and the excellent Fujifilm X-T2 camera. This is a duo made in heaven, especially for street photographers, such as myself.

Help me get the gear I want - if you've enjoyed this post, please upvote and resteem, so I can continue posting my work exclusively on Steemit, as I have done so far. You can also vote on any of the following active posts, if you enjoy them (or hit #dek-photography and filter by "new" to see all of my work!)


Look where we have come, From early written languish to high speed internet on Steemit. Makes you wonder where we will go in the future.

Cortex communication with emoticons :D

ha ha... I shouldn't laugh.

That is really cool to see all the different alphabets in one place, and compare them to one another like you have here. Thanks for putting this out in this format. Looks like a pretty fun, educational museum to visit, and photograph.

Unless... they make you part of the exhibition...

Oh dear...
