Monuments Around The World

You know, they are kind of everywhere: buildings, statues and structures that commemorate people or events. Here are a few I have recollected in the past, some are well known and some not so much:

  1. I like St. Basil’s and Strawberry Fields but the ads that cover the bottom half of most of the photos are highly annoying! The first shot of the tomb is interesting because it looks so abandoned.

    1. Unfortunately my ad program doesn’t allow me to choose where the ads go :s and I’m not allowed to do my own advertising. I wish it didn’t cover that many photos too, sorry about the annoyance! Thanks for commenting and sharing your opinion.
