all of us, just tourists

From Cabinet of Wonders via mental_floss, a blog post with a bunch of pictures of tourists posing as if they're holding up or pushing over the leaning tower of Pisa -- except from the wrong angle ... "which, when taken out of context, looked like some kind of mass-hallucination tai chi class."


You can't tell what these people are doing, only that they're concentrating very hard on accomplishing something they think is enjoyable.

What a fantastic metaphor for so much of our lives.

true!

the suburb next to mine is called niles and they happen to have their very own leaning tower (of niles). it's on the same property as a local YMCA. you know, the leaning tower YMCA.

That's great.

Sort of only vaguely related, but you know those fantastic photos of the bears catching salmon in Alaska?



Well, this is what that scene looks like:



It's always an interesting perspective when you take a step back from what the throngs are photographing.
