Not enough background information...
on 30 December 2013
One of the opening paragraphs in the intro says how the explorers like to do their research prior to visitng these sites as it makes their imagination visualise the ghosts and history of the hidden places. I agree with that statement, however the book is just filled with photos and no information. They're beautiful images but with no captions how are we supposed to know what the sites once were or what countries they're in? How are WE supposed to visualise it if we're not provided with any research? I just dont feel any connection, its more like a photo album. It would be better with brief descriptions underneath the photos to give us a sense of feel so that we too can visualise what these places were once like in their prime. Overall, the photos are truly beautiful pieces of art, but they are just photos. Without information there's no depth.
