In The Eye Of The Beholder

Sigh.

When you live in a big world capital you tend to take its famous landmarks for granted. Parisians seem to almost despise the Eiffel tower, New Yorkers snub the Statue of Liberty, and the people of Rome overlook the Colosseum.  Sometimes along the way you stop seeing the beauty and you grow irritated by the scores of tourist that crowd your way, snapping photos...until you move to a place which grandest claim to fame is a suburban mall.

I went through 6 years worth of photos recently during a backup campaign and I took aside a bunch of photos representing things I used to find commonplace before - the London Eye being one of those things, and more from the archives to follow.
