Reality: The Pyramids of Giza
Nearly all the published photos you find on the internet or in history books show the Pyramids of Giza from one direction. The reason for that is that particular angle ads to the desert mystique of the Pyramids.
In fact, the Pyramids are located just outside the bustling city of Giza, in Greater Cairo. Shot from the opposite direction you are faced with the reality of grimy, dirty city life.
