Since elementary school, Pisa, with its leaning tower, has always been on my bucket list.  While visiting Pisa, a truck driver was so taken with the idea that he leaned his 18-wheeler completely onto its side on a city street.  Unlike the truck driver, the tower remained steady for pictures, although getting the perspective just right was a problem.  The lean shows best in the picture of its base, while looking at one of the top floors becomes a little scary.  One has been photo-shopped to remove the lean, and it totally removes the mystique, while the first picture has not been altered in any way.  There is no elevator in the tower requiring those who go up or down to walk on stairs that lean one way, then another.
