These pics really show how the world is so interconnected that all modern cities look alike.

These pictures were really beautiful at first...but then the realization set in on how damaging and chaotic humans are on our environment, engulfing every bit of nature and animal habitat for our selfish and unrelenting needs.

This type of post only really works if the before and after pictures are shot from the same place.

The after shot of Paris doesn't even have the Eiffel Tower in it!

#48, #49 Singapore do not do Singapore justice at all, and it's not even the same area as comparison. Singapore is as breathtaking as Hongkong's #28, #29. check google everyone.
