Giants in the Earth

Giants in the Earth
A wonderfully odd photo (I received it as a Christmas gift!) that makes it look like giants still walk the earth.

A boy sits in the driver's seat of a continuous-track tractor that's pulling a plow, while a man and a woman (possibly the boy's parents or maybe his mother and grandfather) awkwardly pose for the photo by standing on the other side of the tractor (mouse over the image to see a close-up).

The small size of the tractor and the looming hill in the background help to distort the perspective, making the man and woman seem much taller than they actually are. I also like how the man is waving one of his gloved hands in a sort of we-come-in-peace gesture.
