ABC Wednesday "I" is for "information"

The above is called the Little Pyramid, and it stands in the center of Belgrade's pedestrian street, Knez Mihailova, right in front of the Academy of Arts and Sciences. The pyramid bears an inscription saying that Belgrade’s geographic center is situated at 44 degrees 49 minutes and 14 seconds of the northern geographic latitude and at 20 degrees 27 minutes and 44 seconds of the eastern geographic longitude, at an altitude of 116 meters.

So there's your information for today! See how others have interpreted the letter 'I' on ABC WEDNESDAY.

I find that pyramid very interesting, since its top is separated from other part. Looks like the one on a dollar bill, don't you think? :)

Nice geometric shape for geographic info. I love the traditional street sweeper you've captured too. No blasted noisy blowers to disturb the peaceful morning.

So does this make it GPS art?

Daryl said...

I am sure this info is relevant to someone .. maybe many many centuries from now it will be unearthed and help who ever found it learn about the place it stood ... scifi anyone?
