Of men and structures


Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. The structure dwarfs men. As I took the picture I had to think of the many monument temples and palaces, the pyramids, all structures created to show Man's significance and in doing so reverses the process making us appear small and insignificant.

We are smaller than ants, crawling on a dust speck floating in a huge universe.

Your pic is a wonderful representation of that.

The beams make for interesting lines. I did see mention of Heathrow yesterday in the newspapers... the mayor wants to shut it down?
