Colombia awarded perspectives

Colombia awarded perspectives

10 very diverse images have been selected as the Colombian nominees for the international Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 finale. But one thing all images have in common: they offer a special perspective on the monument. Churches, towers and castles: there are many ways to look at them and illustrate.

Sometimes the perspective is all in the symmetry (the tower of Herveo), or by showing the full depth of a deteriorating building (Bello railroad station), but sometimes it is all about oh-so-familiar action (the pigeons at the church of Veracruz). A wonderful set of heritage, and a promise for more next year!
