A Different Point of View

I saw this article today – about well-known landmarks photographed from a different angle.
It’s funny, because while we were traveling around Europe last year, we often discussed how different certain landmarks looked in real life, compared to what we had seen online.
I’m not really sure what I expected, but when we finally got to see many of the places we were looking forward to visiting – such as the Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa or Eiffel Tower – we were almost disappointed that streets, houses and buildings had been erected around them over the years. Call me naive, but it did take away from the magnificence in some way.
So I always find it really interesting to see articles like this – and to view the landmarks in a different way – a more realistic way.

Of the landmarks mentioned, we visited seven – which has inspired me to share some of our viewpoints:

The Acropolis - Athens, Greece
