To me, the top photo is more fascinating
The images are "before and after" photos of the "El Castillo" step-pyramid at Chichen Itza.
The lower photo reveals the incredible workmanship and brings to mind the probably decades of human labor required to create this magnificent structure. The upper photo shows how the natural world "reclaimed" the pyramid during a thousand years of rampant growth, giving just a hint of what can be accomplished given enough time. Extend that to tens of thousands of years, or hundreds, and wonder how much of the "anthropocene" will be detectable in our planet's future.
