Zoomed Out Famous Landmarks Will Burst Your Bubble

Internet is bursting with the images of the famous landmarks in all their glory, But zoom out a bit and lose the focus and then you will see the bigger picture. The world’s most famous landmarks live in popular imagination in their idealized form, but it can be surprising to see them in person.

While some landmarks can be even more awe-inspiring when you take in their natural surroundings, others have been swallowed up by sprawling cityscapes. People and their buildings eating everything up from nature to man made historical landmarks.
