In the Developing Your Eye course from WordPress, the theme today is Big.  I really don’t have a lot of large structures in my town, just a few State government buildings all located within the same few blocks downtown.  There are impressive in some aspects architecturally, but mainly they’re just very large.  Instead of trying to make a nice image of them, I decided rather to post another photo from Rome.  I think the perspective of the photo adds to the image, which some of you may know is the Alter of the Fatherland.  A monument honoring Italy’s first king and First World War soldiers.  If you have seen it, you know it is massive!  At first, one may think that the monument is a government building or museum, but it’s basically a monument, a very large monument.

I added text into the photo, a Bible verse, Psalm 146:3.  “Do not trust in nobles, in man, who cannot save.”  While the monument is beautiful, breathtaking really, it is a monument to man, who, in all his glory, will never be able to save a single soul.
