I don't know why humans (particularly American humans) love taking mundane things and building huge replicas of them. I got to thinking about this after driving by the huge pair of binoculars in Venice, CA (seen below) for the thousandth time and wondering why I always turn to look at them.
So I rounded up a bunch of photos of huge things. Some of these are of questionable quality, due to the fact that they look like vintage vacation photos, but they are all pretty interesting nonetheless. There are literally thousands of these out there -- I skipped a bunch of them, and show here only the ones I thought were the most interesting.
As always, click any photo to see larger size.
