When i arrived at the Tuscan town of Pisa in Italy, I immediately looked for its
world famous landmark, the Tower of Pisa. With a local guide map, i walked
from the train station to the tower. From afar, i saw a glimpse of the tower already.
I excitedly pushed myself out of the crowd of tourists all heading to the same
direction. When i reached the gate of the church, I was so amazed to see the tower for
real. But then, as i entered the gate, my attention suddenly switched to the crowd of
tourists standing around with their hands in the air. It was weird at first and made me
wonder what the heck was going on. Then i saw countless of people too with cameras on
their knees taking photos of these people posing like they are leaning on the tower. Aha!
Now that made sense. It was very interesting seeing these tourists doing stupid things,
posing like they are pushing, leaning, holding or carrying the tower like incredible Hulk.
I cant stop clicking my camera!….looking back i realized i took more photos of
people taking forced perspective photos than the remarkable architectural design
of the Leaning Tower of Pisa :(.
