RDP Monday: COLOSSAL
From the Colossus of Rhodes to the statue of Zeus at Olympia, of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient world only one remains…
The Great Pyramid of Giza is all that is left of the Ancient Wonders.
I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid I memorized the Seven Wonders and read every story I could find about them. I even wrote my own stories and vowed that one day I would visit the places where they once stood.
Well. You know. Maybe I will one day.
I’ve chosen pictures that I’ve liked from the New Wonders, not necessarily the image of the sites voted on- and I’ll explain why-
From what I understand there are now 7 new sights that have been declared The New Seven Wonders and though I don’t disagree that these new wonders are magnificent in their own right, I can’t help to feel that-
they’ve been logged, recorded, and their images have been used in political photo-ops, travel commercials and backdrops in countless movies
there isn’t a lot of room for ‘wonder’ to take place- which I guess is a little sad to me.
On the other hand, the two New Wonders that I’ve pictured above do have a little magic and maybe- if I’m lucky I’ll hear a story or two coming from their way.
After all, a million people voted on these sights and made them our new Wonders and a million people can’t be wrong, can they?
