The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

Petra is built on a colossal scale, as is evident from this view of the Treasury from the Siq – the 1.2km long narrow passage that is the most common way to enter the ‘rose-red city, half as old as time’.

This is a view of the long, deep and narrow gorge , called the ‘Siq’, that is the main entrance to the historical site of Petra, in Jordan. The two figures on horseback give a good idea of scale.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a very large object, so certainly qualifies for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week.
Wikipedia can give you all the statistics, but to get a visual idea of how big it is, look at this image of the central part of the metalwork and consider the fact that those are people standing on top of the structure, immediately below the flags. It’s possible – if you’re that way inclined – to take a tour of the bridge’s superstructure. I imagine the views are spectacular.
