If you look for pictures of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you will come across countless pictures of tourists in strange postures. We have taken a closer look.
People upon people move around the Leaning Tower of Pisa every day. Some come alone, others drop in as a group for a brief flying visit and then disappear again. And no matter what the weather is, people take pictures of what they can with their cameras or cell phones. Everyone tries to take a picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and to show that the tower is really leaning! For those who have not yet seen the tower in Pisa, will not believe that it is really so slanted.
We did not miss it and looked for a while only people and not buildings. What interesting poses and postures are taken to get “the photo” with the Leaning Tower of Pisa …
But mostly it is even more exciting to watch the photographer. He usually stands rigidly in one place and directs his “model” to the perfect position. From “to the left…left…” and “I’m going left…” and “I mean my left…” to first relationship crises – you can experience everything here.
It is particularly funny to observe when whole groups are assembled for the photo. What is there pushed and adjusted in the hope but all good to be able to put in pose.
If the weather had been more pleasant during our visit – I could have watched the spectacle for hours with a cup of coffee.
Surprisingly, and I find this very positive, we did not see one visitor who entered the green areas. Everything took place on the paths.
I also noticed that many visitors were very considerate and tried not to walk across a picture. Of course, there are always exceptions, but at “good” photo points people waited until the predecessor was finished and then photographed just a little later.
Is there “the” photo spot?
Honestly – I don’t believe it. We spent quite some time on the area around the Leaning Tower of Pisa and took pictures at various places. If you just want to show the tower, it’s worth walking around it a bit. Most visitors are in the main square.
Ideal to show how crooked the tower is, is to have another building with in the picture. This way the angle becomes clearer.
But I think every viewer will find his ideal photo spot for his favorite picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
