Abseiling the Burj Khalifa by Tracy Lee Stum

The Purple Giant

Kind of a funny forced perspective photograph I came across a while back and put in a folder for future post ideas.  It certainly looks like the man in the forefront (the purple giant?) is significantly taller than everyone else around him.  He is standing on some sort of ledge closer to the camera than […]
