Why you may ask am i covering already covered material, well when this photo 1st came to light i spent some time trying to work out 2 area's of the
photo, namely the head in the bottom right front of the photo and the large building ruins in the distance of the photo. I did these a while ago and
have finally decided to post them. I hope this thread can add a little more info about the photo.
Lets start with the statue head pictured below (and yes i have enhanced the circle with brightness)
Now how do we work out how big this thing is ???
well we have to find an annotated version of the photo from NASA showing a measurement of some kind. Below is that version.
(this picture has been heavily edited for use in post, The area was selected, cut and put into a new J-peg, The 2 vertical black lines are additions
by myself as well as the long black line reaching to the object in question. The Red line is also my addition. The 2 black & white measurement lines
are by NASA.)
Now the red line underneath the black one represents 2 meters (this is by no means 100% accurate) which would suggest our statue head to be around
just under 1 meter in length. A reasonable size for a carved head but by no means huge. As you can see from the above method it is possible to roughly
gauge distance,perspective and measurements of objects as long as we have a base reference in the photo.
OK so onto area 2 of the photo, the ruins in the background or what some have called a square block, but i believe there is a lot more definite
evidence than just a block.
Below is a close up of the area
And here is 3 Edited versions of the same area (The Colour difference of photo's here is down to NASA, my additions are only the black lines and
arrows. They are different versions of the same photo all from NASA)
My theory on this is that lava flow devastated this area.
So as you can see from the above i have added a fair amount of lines. The arrows represent the lava flow and as you can see from the close up (3rd
photo of 3) we even have a broken off wall that has been shifted in angle by the force of the rocks/lava that hit it.
you can also see how the lava/rocks/dirt coming from above has gone in 3 directions on coming into contact with this building. Left,center & right
which is exactly what one would expect to see from a large volume of liquid pouring into/over a building.
The white wall (1st photo of 3) i have marked out further to the right is much less definite and could well be nothing more than natural. but at the
same time worthy of examination.
I also could not work out the measurements to the ruins from NASA's annotated version as they are to far into the distance to get a useable reference
to my knowledge. If anyone else can that would be much appreciated.
Below is the whole Image
If you right click on the photo's and view photo in your options they are easier to see
