Architectural marvels reveal their grandiose scale when we notice their perspective to something else. I failed to be impressed the first time I walked into St. Peter's Basilica and gazed upon the lofty shapes and forms of the ceiling. Then one of my confreres told me to gently lower my vision to the floor and compare the vaulting against the ant-sized human beings on the far end of the Church. It was that perspective that dropped my jaw in awe.
