20 Photos That Give Away the Real Size of Objects Only by Comparison

Size is an abstract value until we start comparing one object to another. For example, Titanic was referred to as the “biggest passenger liner” that had ever set sail in the twentieth century. Today, we’ve built the cruise ship, which is 2 times larger and can accommodate 4 times more passengers than the Titanic. And while some things just appear to be created differently in size, others can evolve dramatically over time.

Bright Side has found some photos that will amaze you with impressive size comparisons.
