Most famous landmarks appear in spectacular images but you only have to step back a bit to get a completely different perspective. Some look more impressive while others are a huge disappointment.
Sometimes the angle, perspective and framing of a photograph can favor the image of certain places that we often have no idea of the context in which that image was taken.
The surroundings in which a building or monument is located can drastically change the conception of the person that is seeing and so some scenarios are not always shown in their integrate.
Of course, not all of these spectacular images reduce this great landmarks’s grandeur. The Acropolis, the Santorini and the New York City’s Central Park I think it looks even better or at least look great in a different way in their second photos.
Take a look at these spectacular images of 12 famous landmarks in a way you would never have imagined. Beware, you will be amazed!
This spectacular image shows Stonehenge in England which is estimated to have been built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC.
This site has baffled Archaeologists for years as nobody is quite sure how they were able to construct such a thing so long ago.
2. The Great Pyramids of Giza (Egypt)
Tourists to the Pyramids don’t realize how close they are to the city of Cairo until they visit.
3. Taj Mahal (India)
Every time you see the Taj Mahal palace it is in a spectacular image but unfortunately a different perspective of this famous landmark is really saddening.
It’s incredible how something so beautiful can be allowed to be surround by so much ugliness. In fact is reported that this Taj Mahal palace won’t be around for much longer because of pollution and deforestation.
4. Sagrada Familia in Barcelona (Spain)
Even though most cathedrals are in the major city centers it still is interesting to from this perspective.
5. Niagara Falls (USA)
This shows just how touristy Niagra Falls has become over the years.
6. The Acropolis (Greece)
Towering above the city center is the famous Acropolis temple which kind of looks out of place in the middle of a modern Athens city.
7. Central Park, New York City (USA)
This park was actually man made which is probably why it looks so out of place in the middle of the city.
8. The Forbidden City (China)
This palace is the largest in the world and because of it’s restricted access it became known as the forbidden city.
9. Cristo Redentor in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The famous favelas of Brazil, it’s so sad to see that these shanty town houses were allowed to flourish in such a beautiful city which not only turned the city ugly but turned it into one of the most dangerous cities in Brazil.
10. Mona Lisa in Louvre Museum (France)
The infamous Mona Lisa, even if you get into the Louvre its still not easy trying to get a glimpse of this painting. There are just too many people all wanting the same thing, to gaze upon her smile.
11. Arch of Triumph in Paris (France)
I’ve driven around this roundabout, not exactly a fun experience.
