Zoomed-out photos give new perspective to famous landmarks

New, 57 comments

Famous landmarks like the Taj Mahal and Mount Rushmore look startlingly different outside of travelogues. PolicyMic's photo compilation shows zoomed-out portraits of 15 iconic tourist attractions and their postcard shots. The collection shows how small the Forbidden City, once the political center of ancient China, appears when juxtaposed against modern Beijing. Similarly, the white-walled homes of Santorini look even more majestic from a bird's eye view.
