Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Pyramid

I have to make a small detour from my Sydney posts and leap over to the Egyptian pyramids for this week’s picture challenge. Having only seen them on the television or at the movies, I had no concept of how big the pyramids were until I saw them in person. And then you really are amazed at the scale of the construction, given that they didn’t possess the technology that we do today !

If you’ve been reading from our early days, you’ll have noticed that the main picture was used in a previous weekly challenge. Versatility. Love it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

For this week’s Monument theme in the Weekly Photo Challenge, I’ve chosen the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This would’ve been a less compelling picture had it not been for a horse and carriage trotting by to give some perspective as to its size. In its time, it was the largest man-made structure for almost 4000 years.
