When my father was in Egypt with the Australian army in 1941, he visited the pyramids and brought back several photos. I looked at the shape of the great pyramid in the photo here on the left where the smaller ones in the distance are dwarfs, and thought of the glass structure outside the Louvre which I visited in 2010. It even has a small pyramid beside it which makes the two Egyptian pyramids at the left of the older photo look the same height relative to the large one. But it’s a two-dimensional illusion, of course.
I turned my photo black and white to see if I could give it a 1940s look, but it lacks the soft blur of old photography, especially at the edges. The man captured at the very left of the Egyptian image is recognisable as human though no detail is visible, unlike the visitors to the Louvre who are possibly identifiable.
