14th January 2015 - A matter of Perspective..

Thought for the day: " I bought an Internet Explorer advent calendar in the January Sale. It takes ages to open a window."

Somethings sometimes need to be viewed from the right perspective...  It was today that I came across some images that show this so clearly. The perspective can be so important...  And here are a series that prove the point...


how it could be seen..
 The wonderful Niagara Falls..


and the Brandenburg Gate..




hidden somewhere here..
We all know Stonehenge...
but we know that the road is to be moved sometime in the future...
There are Iconic images  - the Taj Mahal
but when seen from the right direction (or wrong one..)
The Hollywood sign is normally seen from here ..
A nice shot with flowers in the desert..   or ....
Even such things as a famous painting... ( I have a coffee table that loks like this..)
Try and find it in public though...
The Famous Mount Rushmore faces...  Though I like the cartoon showing the Canadian side with the backsides showing through - but they are a little more insignificant
and Central Park in New York -
 this actually looks more spectacular in my view...
An off to Greece ....
I found it quite hard to get that really effective photo...
Sometimes it is a matter of scale - the Mermaid..
No wonder it is a disappointment to most who find it ...
One I did not really know except by picture - la Sagrada Familia Barcelona
But in context...
And then we have the beautiful Santorini..
And where do we find it??




So these are the great sights around the world.. but this also happens within our news coverage..

In the wake of the atrocities in Paris over the murder of the Charlie Hebdo journalists, the news was full of the world leaders uniting with the millions marching in demonstration.. Here they were united with the people.
 
And here we can see the real picture....


"The photo depicting the fictitious participation of world leaders in the Paris Charlie Hebdo demonstration. While in the media, photos and video of the leaders were almost invariably angled to give the appearance of massive crowds in their wake, one shot taken from above shows them standing bunched tightly together in barely a dozen rows in an empty street, cordoned off from the marchers by a heavy ring of security.
Nothing could more accurately symbolize the reactionary character of this assemblage of state officials and the fraud of their attempt to posture as defenders of human liberties.
At the center of those participating in the photo was French President Fran├žois Hollande, whose approval ratings in recent months have plumbed new depths—around 15 percent at the end of last year. The president no doubt hopes that the events surrounding the attack on Charlie Hebdo will buttress his government as it pursues unpopular policies at home and abroad."

Strange what you see if taken from the right perspective...

Why I think I do not like politics thee days ..

Good night..
